Super fun trail with a couple very fast sections, some tiny drops, a little pedaling, and a recently rerouted flow trail ending.Follows the fenceline of sawmill gulch. This side dries out before the spring and curry sides of the Rattlesnake and is usually good for some early season pedaling. Can get pretty loose in the summer.

Access Info

After climbing up into sawmill, take a left and stay on the fenceline all the way down.

      Mix of mud, snow, ice, dry spots. Lots of ruts from narrow tires, people deciding to ride off trail through the meadow.

       It’s probably Best written down hill but the climb was a lot of fun and a hell of a workout. We pushed a little but most was rideable.
