Description

From the parking area, the trail follows nice smooth flowing dirt through a confusing intersection with Snake Trail and then Anaconda Trail. Climb through a small pass with great views, then descend rocky terrain passing several more trails. Once past Rupp Trail, you can continue 2.4 more miles all the way to highway 89A.

The trail flows nicely along Dry Creek, which may have water in season, with some smooth and flowing sections through forest. Numerous crossings have steep climbs up and down the creek banks, several of which may require walking for intermediate riders. Eventually the trail leaves Dry Creek and climbs up to the South Gateway Visitor Center on Route 89A. The climb has some sections of loose cobble that add some challenge.
