This is the main trail into the Happy Jack trail system from the Summit Trailhead Parking area. A short climb to the highest point of the trail offers a great view of Happy Jack and Vedauwoo (especially in the fall). Then it's a slightly technical trail with short ups and downs all the way to the final, rocky descent to the Headquarters Trailhead.

You can also ride this one from the Headquarters parking area. This will offer a pretty grueling climb with some tough rock/root sections.

      Still a few weeks until trails are going to be clearing up. Hiked HQ to check on things, still big drifts in spots and packed snow most of the way...

      Headquarters is well packed to the crow creek turn off. Easy fat biking.

       Portions of this trail have been rerouted; it needs a GPS update.
