Fun trail with a few stream crossings, a few super steep sections, and mostly smooth and rolling terrain. Good as part of the Wardsworth/Dry Canyon loop.

Disclaimer

Forest Service maps show this trail going further up the canyon to the road, but it seems to have disappeared.

      Pretty good condition - some snow on the lower part up to the stream crossings, but most of the trail is fantastic. Get it while you can before...

      Some sections of mud and several areas where the trail is pretty beat up from cows. Still a fun ride.

       With latest updates to this section of the Wardsworth trail, it's smooth and better than ever. Rock garden for the first river crossing, bridge for the second crossing, and rebuilt sections where erosion has all but removed the trail, make this trail a complete blast to ride.

       Fun trail, only rode the uphill portion, but this would be a blast to come down. Trail was quite well maintained, only a few rocky patches.
      Ran into quite a few hikers, some horseback riding, no other mountain bikes.
