“One of many loop options, a steady climb, some scrambling, then a steep descent.”
— Christopher Huot
This trail starts at the east side of Paonia. Enter the gate and stay left. The trail is mostly singletrack with some doubletrack sections. After 1-2 miles of fairly flat terrain, it's a steady climb with occasional switchbacks. Halfway through the loop, there is some hike-a-bike terrain. Then you get a chance to relax in a hammock set up at the top.
Finally, descend some fairly steep singletrack. Many other loop options exist in the lower portion of the ride.
