Brand new for 2014, this trail climbs over 1,000 vertical feet in about 3 miles to connect the top of Cold Creek Trail / High Meadow to Monument Pass and the TRT. The lower half is really fun and flowy, a good climb or descent. The top half is a bit more sandy but a great new options to get up to the Rim Trail. It passes through many old growth Jupiter trees and some cool rock outcroppings. Ride as an out and back or over to Star Lake or over to Van Sickle Trail.

Large rockfall in a part of the upper portion of the trail. You will need to dismount and hike through it. Very easy to spot.
