This trail starts near the middle of the Wilkins Peak trail system and gives you an alternate route for riding back to town. The beginning of the trail from the Wilkins Peak side is pretty steep but it's a short bit. This route follows an old motorcycle trail and intersects a few old 2 tracks along the way. The route is easy to follow and marked with cairns. There are several sections that are flowy pump track like roller coasters which are super fun. There are numerous vistas and overlooks to enjoy. BE ADVISED THIS ROUTE RUNS HIGH ALONG A HILL FAR BEHIND AN ACTIVE SHOOTING RANGE.

Access Info

Access from the Wilkins Peak trail system or from behind the Maverick gas station in Green River.
