Part of the multi-use single track trail system in the Gold Creek area. There are two options for getting to the top of the ridge: a long road climb around or the much shorter and more direct Dixie Queen trail. The first part starts as a double track, but after a cold stream crossing quickly narrows down to singletrack. The first part parallels the creek and progressively gets steeper. When the switchbacks start, there are some hike a bike sections for all but the super riders among us. Occasionally you get a quick glimpse of the valley that you've been climbing. This would also be a fun trail to descend as well, but its more worthwhile doing the whole loop. Check with the Gold Creek Lodge on the status of the trail, the moto group in that area does a lot of early season trail work.
It's a long ways in on a dirt road, go for the weekend! Take the Bunco Road (FR 332) to the intersection with FR 278. When you pass the Gold Creek Lodge, you know that you are almost there. Park at the pullout where the trail leaves FR 278.
