A nice singletrack descent along Smith Creek.

Features -none-

Description

This trail takes off from the Smith Lake Trail just east of the north end of the Mt. Elwell Trail. If descending the Mt. Elwell Trail, you can take a right on Smith Lake Trail to quickly reach the start of this singletrack.

The trail descends along the left side of Smith Creek down a steady grade. Near the bottom you'll intersect the Gray Eagle Connector on the right. Stay left to continue down to the end of the trail. From there, retrace your steps or head right to wind your way out on fire roads that descend to Graeagle.
