Trail Overview

This 5-mile trail connects Kingsbury Spur Trail to York Gulch Trail. You gain almost 2000 feet in elevation, rising to 6329 feet at the highest point. The scenery is spectacular, the forest is healthy and well-maintained, and the wildlife includes deer, elk, moose, and bears. All private property crossings are allowed if you stay on the trail. You may encounter some downed timber in some places, so carrying a saw, a snatch block, as well as a tow rope, and other recovery equipment, is a good idea. Take extra fuel, lots of water, and snacks.
