Lower Darling-Castle Creek Trail is a good back-country single-track trail. It is open to MX and the tread is easy to follow except in the upper meadow ~1/4 mile below the junction with Little West Fork (4144) where it can be overgrown.

This can be ridden as an out and back or as a shuttle from Little West Fork of Morgan Creek.

The trail is generally intermediate but there are a few technical sections that will challenge the less experienced rider. There are several stream crossings and a few short boggy/mud sections.
