Trail shared by Almonzo Wilder

A fun climb on a well built trail across the slopes of the San Francisco Peaks.

Description

The Secret Trail traverses through aspen glades and conifer forests on the slopes of the San Francisco Peaks. The trail is well-marked from the Sunset Trailhead at Schulz Pass, and ends unceremoniously on its western side amid the tangle of trails in the Forth Valley system. The trail rides well in either direction, and connections with the Arizona Trail allow it to be used as part of a moderate loop of very enjoyable riding.

The trail has some challenging climbs in either direction that will get your attention. The western portions of the trail have been completely rerouted in recent years (to protect Spotted Owl habitat - stick to the official trail!) - the result is a smooth and well-built trail that makes for a great ride.
