Description

This trail section starts from the top of either Antelope (easier way up) or Bitterbrush - Lower Section (more difficult way up) and leads to the Nelson Loop up top.

It's a mostly smooth, gradual climb - just follow the trail up.

On the way down, watch for other riders, hikers, and horseback riders climbing up. There's often heavy traffic on this trail.

Flat out run from summit of Nelson Loop, down upper Bitterbrush and down Antelope to trailhead.

At the junction with Nelson Loop.  Starting left (doing the loop clockwise) is gives you a better descent, but it's open both ways.

Going up the Upper Section (not yet at Nelson) and looking back.  This was a fun trail, challening trail for me -- as an Beginner/Moderate rider.
