Connector between Yellow Fork and Butterfield Canyon trails. Radio tower to ridgeline at top of Turds & Troughs. Rides easily both directions, though a short/steep berm near YF ridge.

Adaptive Bike Info
aMTB 2 Rating: Obstacles exist. You may or may not be able to ride this solo. Support rider recommended.

Track is generally 30 to 40 inches wide. Exposure, with significant exposure in spots. The wide Bench cut generally all alleviates this and for the most part is on camber, although there are some spots that might be challenging. There is no Techn on this trail, but a single steep hairpin berm near the yellow Fork Ridge. It’s significant enough going uphill that I would not ride this without a spotter.

      Trail has been destroyed by horses, nearly unrideable on the gravel bike, very disappointing!
