This trail goes from the Upper Miner Access Road up towards Kelly Creek and Kelly Lake. The trail disappeared in the upper elevations and we were unable to find it. It is a steep climb out of the Miner Creek drainage and this trail is best ridden downhill with access from Gravelle Creek. There was a bit of downfall across the trail when we rode it in 2014.
