The trail starts out as a double-track and then quickly turns into turns into an awesome narrow flowing singletrack ride. Takes you through pine forests as well as sage brush and balsam root meadows. Great views Awesome wildflowers in the spring. If you park in the pull-out, it'a a 5 km / 3 mi road climb to get to the start of the trail. The trail also ends on a road which you'll have to take back to your car.
