Trail Overview

This is a fun trail along the edge of Union Park before climbing through the trees. It passes an old mining cabin that is known as the Christmas Cabin. It is decorated with Christmas decorations year round. The trail becomes rocky as it climbs through the trees. There are places to ride up the side banks to get an adrenaline rush. The trail becomes less rocky at the top as you drop into the Tin Cup Basin. Watch for moose along the route.
