“This primitive trail connects the Colorado Trail to the main Pole Creek Trail.”
— Evan Chute
Accessed from the Colorado Trail at the west end and the Pole Creek Trail
at the east end, this is a primitive, rarely traveled trail that follows the West Pole Creek drainage. The high point is at the west end, and it drops steeply in to the creek when traveling east to west, then undulates up and down as it winds it's way to meet up with the main Pole Creek Trail
. Steeper descents are interspersed with short, steep climbs for the majority of the hike.
