A great trail that links Around the Mountain from Bogus with either Dry Creek or Hard Guy. It is fun, flowy single track and has some technical sections. There is one large rock drop near the beginning, but can easily be ridden around.

Access Info

Ride up Around the Mountain trail from the Deer Point Express chair lift (main chair lift across from the lodge). You will come to a gate crossing where you need to dismount and go across the dirt road. Cross over and continue riding the trail to another gate crossing. Instead of continuing on Around the Mountain trail, turn right (south) and ride down the dirt road (175C). Stick left on this road and you will shortly come to another gate to be ridden around. Once past this gate, look for the start of the trail on the right (no signage).

       This trail is OK. The downhill has some fun bits broken up by sharp switch backs. Never quite gets it’s flow going. And has some climbing. It’s not a destination trail, but worth doing as part of longer rides, it’s way mor fun than just riding the road to dry creek.

       I really like this trail, but the long climb to get out felt like a bummer as I wanted the trail to keep going. So in other words, it felt short. What IS there is a lot of fun.
