“A fun descent with great views and good singletrack.”— Nick Wilder
The trail brushes against Bellyache Road several times, and in each case, stay on singletrack to the left. Enjoy many juniper trees on less steep terrain with good views and steeper hiking as you descend. Over the years, this trail has worn slightly to expose sharp rocks and small root drops.
The trail ends with fun and steep switchbacks on characteristically white, punchy hills. This section of the trail is somewhat eroded.
The Holy Cross Wilderness lies behind you, the Eagle Valley up ahead, and beautiful red cliffs guard the canyon to the east - enjoy!
