This is a super steep, raw trail that connects velocity basin to the Boulder Gulch trail. At times, finding the right traverse is difficult but once your out of the basin, its more obvious. Be aware of the weather and elevation

       This isn't much of a trail. Anyone using this be aware that serious routefinding and hike a bike will be necessary. Having trailforks will assist, but even then the trail will not be visible in a lot of cases.
