High Point

This is a great 2 hour loop with a long buff downhill on the final leg.
Start from the McClellan cr trailhead by riding south on the road across the bridge and up a short hill to an aspen grove on the right. The trail starts on the north edge of the grove and is not marked. You will soon come to a long steep hill which may require some pushing. After topping out, the trail descends into a large meadow. Shortly after crossing the creek, go left (south) and and follow a faint track up the meadow which contains the creek (Maupin). The general rule after this is to stay left the rest of the way up - the trail is rustic, but fairly obvious.
Enjoy the downhill and remember to bear left at the remaining intersections.

Definitely faint but still discernable in most places. There are a number of forks in the path that head off in the wrong direction, so make sure you have a good GPS map.
