Classic rocky singletrack that descends around the north side of Basalt Mountain through parts of the burn zone. Does not see much use so can be more of an "adventure" ride. Watch for deadfall in the burn zone. Can be ridden out and back or accessed from Basalt Mountain Road, then following out Basalt Mountain to be ridden as a downhill.

       Very overgrown right now, also watch for dead fall in the burn zone.
