Jewell Pass Details
Jewell Pass is the second part of the XC classic Prairie View - Jewell Pass loop. It's popular with hikers [and the occasional horse] on the weekends, so weeknights are a good option.
Beginning from the junction with Quaite Valley and Prairie View, head down the Jewell Pass singletrack. It starts off as fast, windy singletrack, a few hits to jump off of, with some sections of loose rock and roots. The floods of 2013 and subsequent rebuild radically changed parts of the trail. What used to be a narrow dirt trail with a few hinky bridges and techy bits is now wider, faster and pretty damn fun at speed. Take it easy on your first ride through. There's one short, sharp climb to take you out of the gully, and you're back to blasting along on rooty dirt before ripping across a cutline and dropping onto the Stoney Trail. Head left/east on Stoney to get back to Barrier Dam.
