Trail Overview

This is a 1.3-mile-long easy single track that goes along the rim of a mountain the whole way. It's really smooth, with rocks pushed to the side of the trail. There isn't much exposure because it's on a wide shelf but sometimes gets close to the edge. It goes through a low alpine terrain of rolling hills but is mostly flat, so it's super easy and great for a beginner. The terrain is really beautiful in fall when the scrub oak turns into beautiful shades of orange and red.

Difficulty

This is an easy single-track trail that is flat and smooth and is great for beginners.
