“An excellent option on the lower half of Vail mountain.”

Description
After completing one of the upper mountain flow trails like Big Mamba or Radio Flyer, you have a few options. If you want intermediate cross country riding (a little rougher than those flow trails mentioned above), this is your best bet.

Hank's dives off into the aspen forests outside the ski area. The trail is not very steep and takes its time to get down, mostly through gorgeous aspen glades with some ruts and roots here and there.

At the bottom, cross a road and continue on slightly uphill singletrack a little bit to get back to the gondola, or turn left on the dirt road, cruise down to Cascade Village, and take the Gore Creek Valley Trail back.
