Fun quick trail, starts with a moderate climb up the Wellsville Wilderness access trail. About a quarter mile up take the left fork and heads side-hill across the mountain in a beautiful grove of maples with ivy hanging about and pockets of thick ferns. At 0.4 miles is another fork, generally stay to the right to ride the loop counter-clockwise, but may be ridden either way. You'll wind down through an exposed sagebrush hill before heading back up to the trees. Trail below the sage-brush ridge hasn't been cut yet and is still rough in spots.

It's rideable by fat bike but needs more traffic. It's narrow and bumpy since the only traffic it's seen is people with snow shoes.

Trail is completely finished. It's a bit rough in spots through the open sagebrush sections, but it's easy to follow and fun.
