This trail departs Lower UW Trail and descends quickly through the Happy Jack area. Be prepared for moderate tech, this trail has lots of rocks, roots, and turns. It connects to Haunted Forest Trail and Middle Aspen Trail.

Significantly re-routed in summer 2020. The old trail is still visible in spots and has been buried in logs in parts where it had become a two-wheel skid-channel on the descent and a nasty push-your-bike on the ascent.

      Running great, the new reroute adds a fair bit of length and some climb, trail is better for it, it also now should run well in both directions. ...

       Fun trail, a mix of tech and flow, but nothing that isn't beyond its blue rating, a few punchy tech climbs in the upper section, lower section gets really fast and fun going through the aspens.

       This trail is awesome. The send half past a small climb is the best!
