Description
Leave the ski area and cruise down the ridge west of Eagle Bahn gondola terminal. Turn left at the one intersection (the Matterhorn trail goes to the right). Follow an old road to a beautiful meadow and Game Creek. Follow the creek down mostly easy riding on smooth trail. There are some minor technical difficulties near the end, but easy to walk through if you're the cautious type.

Though the trail is not hard, it feels much more remote than most Vail rides, and is something of an adventure.
