Very popular summertime trail for both hikers and bikers. Feels like a true alpine ride, but just an hour from the strip! Fun singletrack with good flow, and some roots and rocks to keep the speed in check. Downhill is the most fun, but the gradual pitch and occasional tech obstacles make for a nice uphill challenge. Tons of hikers on weekends, so ride with caution.
Most often accessed from climbing Lower Bristlecone. You can also park at the ski area and pick up the trail from the helipad (road end).
