Description

Earnie's - it's all in the name. You'll earn your descent off the peak of this trail with a lung busting, thigh burning climb.

Start the trail from the back of the Railroad Pass Casino via a short paved trail to the north. Once you cross the RR tracks turn right into the dirt, the singletrack starts about 25 feet and is not immediately obvious. Ride a mile through rocky terrain before the climb gets steeper taking you to an amazing viewpoint. From there continue on to Mother or descend back on Earnie's or The Sh*t.

Found this poor old fellow lying in the trail, barely enough energy to hold hid head up. He drooped soon after not likely to ever get up again. Very sad.
