This trail sometimes assimilated into the Dakota Ridge trail, though it skips the most fun sections of Dakota Ridge. Despite that, it offers some challenging slick rock descents/climbs, loose dust and gravel, and tight corners. The trail is a less extreme choice for accessing the Red Rocks Trail proper and the other side of Matthews Winters park depending on your direction of travel.
