A great access to the Magnolia Trails from the town of Nederland. A narrow singletrack trail with some intermediate technical challenges that climbs from just East of the high school to the Aspen Alley Trail. The first section from the road is the most technical and strenuous section you will encounter. If you're okay with that section the rest of the climb will not be a problem. Keep your head up while climbing as many people bomb this on the downhill to finish their ride (super fun). It's a good example of the riding you will encounter on the front country section of trails at Magnolia.
