Sometimes referred to as 'Classic Campbell' or 'Campbell Classic', this trail begins just past the Yellow Gate and meanders up to an old Dairy Queen table poised with some epic views. Originally, the trail went all the way up to the DH line, but for the purposes of simplification, it is split into 2 trails.
It is a sidehill exposure climb for parts, but very few technical challenges with today's mountain bikes.
There is a slight optional diversion that is being used during the opening switchbacks, but it ends at the same place. Just adding a few hundred meters to your ride.

Access Info

If leaving from the Yellow Gate, follow the road up until the first corner. You will see a trail head and the DH jump line crossing it. Follow the Orange Arrows.
