Less-used trail that climbs fairly steadily from Sheep Creek road to the GWT. Grade is pretty consistent, with one steep section in the middle. Great scenery; lower end is mostly scrub oak, upper half is aspen-conifer forest. Watch for cows at the bottom during the summer months.

      Little overgrown, more tires on this trail would actually make it better.
