      High alpine riding area, with massive amounts of exposure, shale, moon dust and dry loam. The views are stunning, the air thin and there is most certainly some risk involved. Riding from Anthony Lakes is easy enough in terms of navigation, but guides are highly recommended when pursuing Elkhorn Crest, Summit Lake or Dutch Flat trails.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      Shuttleable: YES
