A fun high country trail ride through alpine meadows, old growth forest, and numerous creek crossings. Mixed trail riding with numerous technical spots and a few steep climbs. This trail starts at the Junco Lake Trailhead and ends at the Devil's Thumb Trailhead. Ride as an out and back from either end, or shuttle from North to South to maximize the downhill. Junco Lake Trailhead is in the Arapaho National Recreation Area and is a fee area. People may warn you that bikes are not allowed in Wilderness, however, this trail does not enter any Wilderness areas.
