This non-motorized, singletrack provides nice vistas of Round Valley and the surrounding mountain ranges. It is usually ridden as an out and back but portions of it can be ridden with other connectors (Chukar, Blue View) to form loops. It offers a rideable steady climb through sage and rock followed by a nice descent on the return.

Access Info

Access is via The Foothills trail and the Valley trail. The Foothills trail can be accessed from a small parking area off the Challis dump road or from the Challis Golf Course via the paved path.
