Good lower elevation singletrack trail. Most often ridden as an out-and-back in conjunction with Lower Henry Creek.

This trail is also ridden part of a larger Henry Creek shuttle with Henry Creek (Upper) itself or one of either Lake Mountain Thunder Mountain trails.

As an out-and-back, trail climbs steadily up to a wire gate, at which point the trail becomes much more difficult getting steeper and rockier and brushier. With some courageous pushing here in the very narrow canyon, you can earn a short stretch of rowdy downhill on your way back before linking up with the mellower singletrack and Lower Henry.

Cows will be present on this trail until mid Sept. Beware Rattlesnakes in late Summer.
