One of the older trails “adapted” for mountain biking in the last 10 years in silverton. Connecting this trail to lower boulder gulch is considered “the town loop”, although it’s much more fun as an out and back. Rooty, rocky, and loamy, It’s a good warm up for the rest of the alpine trails in the area. It has some technical spots, water crossings with bridges in varying conditions, but all easily the walkable. The beaver dam broke a couple years ago and requires walking around during high water. Watch out for moose People have had some close encounters in the past couple years. The trail passes through private land towards arrastra gulch, be respectful so we can keep access for the future!

      Trail is damp and slick, but super fun. Roots and rocks abound, and be cautious on the bridge crossings. The in-water crossings are all rideable,...

       Plenty of water crossings, roots and rocks to keep it entertaining...some of the bridges are sketchy!!
