“Not a good trail, but amazing scenery and partially used on great rides.”— Nick Wilder
The scenery is especially good on the eastern half of the trail, which feels more remote. The famous back bowls spread out on one side of the mountain while the Gore range looms on the other.
Several great rides use the middle part of this trail, such as Bowmans Shortcut to Vail. It also provides a connection to and from Mill Creek Trail and Two Elk Trail.
