Trail Overview

This short single track is mostly a fun, fast, flowy connector from North Fork Cattle Creek Trail to Red Table Mountain Road. This trail is much easier than Lone Pine and North Fork Cattle Creek. It's pretty smooth with only a few roots and not many rocks. There are a couple of really small stream crossings and roots, but nothing difficult. It side hills on a gradual slope elevated above a creek and weaves through an aspen tree forest. There are a couple of sections with more exposure down to the creek below you, but it's pretty mild exposure and easy. It goes through some cow pastures and has a gate in the beginning. This trail opens for the season on June 21st and closes on October 10th.

Difficulty

This is an easy single track with some narrow shelfy sections.
