A great multi-use trail recently completed. The old Little Elden was boring, unsustainable, and was on roads and old fire lines from the Radio Fire. The reroute was completed by FBO, the Forest Service, and the Flagstaff Trail Faeries. This new route has small features and good flow for mountain bikers, good sight lines for equestrians, and many amazing views for all.
