Read the trail reports Trail is almost lost. A nice addition to the Boulder Lake system, the upper trailhead is hard to find, but once on it you descend quickly past grassy meadows, through some marshy areas, and down a steep ridge before reaching the creek. Here the trail levels out some and rolls up and down along the creek but still is a fun pedal.

      Lots of downed logs. Trail has been flagged but pretty much an unrideable hike-a-bike.
