Four-miles of fun alpine trail!

Features -none-

Trail crosses private land so be respectful and stay on the trail. Also close any gates you pass through.

Description

The trail begins with a steep descent for almost half a mile before easing up. At the one-mile mark, the canyon pinches down into some more rugged and steep sections. There are a few rock ledges after you pass under the large dead tree that has fallen over the trail.

This is a fairly quiet trail, but stay alert and on the lookout for other trail users who may not be expecting you. There could be livestock around. Near the bottom, the singletrack approaches Nanny Creek. There are nice aspens and some seasonal stream crossing that won't get you muddy. As the grade mellows out, just enjoy the trail till you reach the gate at Pequop Ranch.

The ranch is private, but the owner has given permission for users to pass through. Just make sure to close any gates you pass through.
