This trail is fairly straightforward - it's mostly flat and fast, but full of small, sometimes loose rocks, so ride within your ability level. From the start at the end of the Doudy Draw trail, it heads mostly south through fairly open forest. You'll catch interesting viewpoints through the trees as you cruise along.

The trail loops around back to the east and eventually northeast all the way to the eastern end of Flatirons Vista North. From this high point, there are expansive views out over the plains, and you also have the option to cross highway 93 here to meet up with the east Marshall Mesa trail system and the Dirty Bismarck loop.
