Trail shared by Craig Fowler

Great flow through scrub oak and aspens, offering one the chance to let it go a little.

Description

Skill Saw or Lower Creek Side continues where Creek Side stops and leads one to the top of Monte Carlo Trail.

Starting in a grove of large scrub oak, the trail is fast to start, but watch out as there are some sharp rocks that will cause a puncture. As you leaving the scrub oaks you'll have a few small log drops and other dips. The tread also is free from rocks on the lower section.

At the end you'll want to be careful as there is a section of trail that is eroding into the creek and if you hit it with speed there's a change your front wheel might fall off the tread and send you into the creek.
