Winter, snowmelt, best not ride alone, no cell signal..
This trail begins at the top near the Box Spring, a cow trail comes off the Trail B-Sandpit. Follow the trail down the hill, and cross the dam, it begins with a sharp right through singletrack and descends immediately.

You'll flow down through many rock gardens,and across a narrow bridge. The trail then flows down the mountain utilizing a very old cow trail and hand built trail. It has many steep descents, and several drop offs with narrow channels. It flows through pines forest, aspen forest, meadows of thimbleberrys. Due to remoteness, man trees mainly aspens have been known to fall, they are old and rotten at the base, and fall periodically. This trail is so cool. Moss rocks, and logs. East coast on mountain!

It contains a few springs as well, and some areas depending on the rainfall of the period will flow and muddy up sections. There is a hike bike section near the end of the trail. It can be ridden, but the skills vs consequence is great..

Elk, Deer, Cows, and mosquitoes are known to frequent the area.
