Trail Overview

This singletrack trail for hike/horse/bike/motorcycles is accessible in the downhill direction Hillside Drive to Roaring Fork or in the uphill direction from Roaring Fork to Hillside Drive. This is a steep singletrack trail with lots of tight switchbacks and steep sections of rocks and slippery roots. If the trail is wet at all, only run it in the downhill direction. The tight switchbacks are rideable uphill when dry but keeping momentum when wet will be nearly impossible for all but the best of riders.

Steep and narrow trail with tight switchbacks and gnarly sidehills on legitimate singletrack. There are many steep rock gardens with exposed tree roots that are very slippery when wet.
