“A creek-side trail from sagebrush to aspen”— Star Fangled Nut

At the road crossing, for the true XC experience, jump on the trail as it leaves the unpaved parking pullout and ride up to the next road crossing. The trail jogs downhill slightly, crossing the creek on the pavement, before heading uphill again towards the upper trailhead.
The upper two sections (see map) are fast and fun with aspen groves, moderate rock gardens, bridges, and the lower gorge is adventure biking at its best with some gnarly rock gardens, baby heads, and some terrific scenery.
