The Eddye McClure Trail can be ridden both ways, but riders looking for downhill flow will prefer to ride west to east due to the many switchbacks on the western face. The upper portion of the eastbound descent threads through tight trees on a sidehill. The trail emerges into Ponderosa meadows as it reaches the east-facing slopes.

This trail crosses private land. Please be respectful and help maintain access to this property.

Access Info

The eastern trailhead is near the intersection of Martinez Gulch Road and South Hills Road.
