A smooth trail through rolling Ponderosa forest and a flowery meadow.

Bill Siebersma

Features -none-

Description

One of two singletracks that connect McGaffey Campground to the the rest of the trail system. Torreon rolls through intimate Ponderosa forest from the Plush Trail down to the McGaffey Campground. After crossing a few minor forest drainages, the trail rockets down to the south end of the Campground, paralleling the fence at the south end of Torreon Meadow for the last 1/2 mile. When done in reverse, it's a steady climb.
