This non-motorized single track trail connects Stormy Peak Lookout with the Stormy Peak Road (023). In its 2.62 miles of distance it goes from 7,945 feet in elevation down to 6,360 feet at the Stormy Peak Road. In the first 1.1 miles from the lookout down, it drops approximately 945 feet. In other words parts of it are steep. From approximately 1.9 miles to 2.3 miles a fire burned and there is a lot of fire killed trees. In the rest of the area, heavy mountain pine beetle mortality has killed mature lodgepole pine trees and there may be heavy downfall if not recently cleared. This trail was probably constructed in the 1930's as access from Shoup to Stormy Peak Lookout. This trail is a gem for mtn bikers when it is cleared.

Access Info
