Fun trail at high altitude in the trees with some technical rock gardens. Especially pretty in the fall when the aspens carpet the trail in golden leaves. Good way to connect ski area to upper sandia trails with lots of options from there.

Access Info

At the top of the KOM/Golden Eagle climb, the trail starts across the forrest access road.
