Description

This trail was an old road that has some steep and steep rocky sections. Parts of the trail has been re-routed onto the Chain Reaction trail(work in progress). It can be a fun descent after pedaling up the first switchback and then be combined with Sage Draw and Moose Gulch loops (together known as the Warming Hut Loops) for a short but fun ride. This trail Recent growth of small trees make for tight narrow sections. it is steeper and more challenging than the trails in the bottom of the canyon.

Most riders only ride down this trail, not up. The trail takes off from the uphill side of the guardrail at the first switchback of the Loop Road and then heads down into the canyon.
