Description

This trail is an improvement of the original Never Sweats trail. Parts of the original are kept or are an optional line. The improved grade makes this a long gradual uphill or a fun long downhill. Starting at the top, the trail has a twisty section through two draws. Leaving the draws, you have some broad views before you descend across open side slopes and through thick pine stands. The trail bed is from 2 feet to 5 feet wide, mostly clay with some rocks.

The slope portion ends in an open meadow where the trail intersects with Rustler. The trail turns to old two-track for a short bit, veers onto the singletrack before traveling under the transmission lines. The trail turns to the west (right) following the signs. There is an option for a side narrow goat trail or the open trail in the meadow.

The trail goes back under the power lines, prepare for a short, steep downhill. Head up to the trail junction. At the junction sign, catch your breath before a long downhill. The trail is singletrack, watch for loose rock. When the trail narrows and has some depth there are some bigger rocks (head-sized) to watch your footing on. When the trail is out of the trees, there is a junction with the original Never Sweats trail. Stay right for a short link to the parking lot. Stay center for a switchbacking, longer hike to the trailhead.
