A fun, fast, intermediate descent through meadows and aspens.

Description

3.5 miles out Brush Creek Road from its intersection with Hwy 135, Farris Creek Road climbs up a hill to the right. The big climb starts here. Approx 3/4 mi into the dirt road climb you'll come to a trail intersection which should be signed. You'll want to take a left to keep climbing up to Strand.

Another 1/2 mile after this you'll come to another intersection which is also signed. Left will take you on the strand bonus trail, but you'll want to take a right to stay on the road climbing higher. Eventually you'll go through a cattle guard and the road will flatten and turn into singletrack where there is a meadow. Rest here, as the downhill fun is about to begin.

After a wonderful downhill romp in the aspens, the trail drops between some tight Aspens and over a short rocky section, makes a hard right turn and climbs a short steep hill. Not far after this you'll come to an intersection with the Canal Trail, take a left here. The next intersection comes not too far up the trail, stay straight here to finish off with more downhill back to the canal crossing.
