One of the better trails we've ridden in this area. Great bang for your buck. Climb a firewood and descend a single track. Aspens going off and...

 This trail disappeared from the MTB Project page. It is a great way to descend after climbing up Line Shack. I last road it a few years back and the only issue is that there were some trees that were too close together to make it through with 740 mm or wider bars. Notches were left on both sides of the trees from riders that tried.

If anyone road this recently, it would be great to hear if the trail is still open and in rideable condition.

 The USFS 2011 Travel Management Plan closed this trail to bikes due to it crossing Colorado State Land Trust property towards the bottom which does not allow recreation. The VVMBA has been working since then to build and open the Everkrisp Trail which would allow bikers egress from a Whiskey Creek without entering CO Stale Lamd Trust Property. With much effort, the Everkrisp Trail was approved in late 2017 and construction began in July 2018. Everkrisp is not open yet but will be in early July 2019 which in turn will open Whiskey Creek (one of/if not the best down in the Valley) to open to bikes again legally.
