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).
