A lightly used trail which follows upper Maupin Creek through long meadows and old mine sites. Due to infrequent use, the trail can be difficult to follow depending on how high the grass is.
Note: The noxious/obnoxious weed Houndstongue is very prevalent along this trail. The round and flat, velcro-like seeds from this plant will hitch a ride on any fuzzy fabric or curly haired canine that passes by. Please dispose of these seeds in a receptacle where they will never have a chance to live again ThanksSmile

This trail is unsanctioned.

       Great ride going south to north, but definitely a "where's Waldo" adventure. Plan on spending some time trying to pick the trail back up...
