Shingle Creek Details
This is a beautiful high mountain trail. Going up would be a challenge for sure as it is steep, loose and full of large boulders in areas. Going down is a great time if you have good technical skills and are good a picking your way thru large rock gardens. Top half is large boulder rock gardens, bottom half smooths out a bit with few rock catch berms to pop over.
Follows shingle creek most of the way down so plenty of opportunities to water your dog or goat...
I'd recommend riding up Upper Setting, it's a double track fire road and then come down this trail. Or better yet get someone to drop you off at the top via Upper Setting. If driving up Upper Setting I'd recommend a vehicle with four wheel drive and decently high clearance.
