This is a nice climbing trail that bypasses the old road climb. The trail has a good amount of sun exposure as it winds up through a little hidden meadow. The trail is a pretty slow and easy climb. As you near the top you feel the altitude a bit and you navigate between aspens. The turns are nice berms but pretty tight. I would consider this a great climbing trail to get to the saddle and on up Puke Hill.

       Great new connector up to Wasatch Crest! Don’t know if I’d call it a green however a lot of overhanging Aspen trees, I whacked my shoulder and went over the bars here Lol
