Description

Innie is typically ridden uphill from North Porcupine towards Outie.

Climbing close to 1000' over just under 4 miles Innie will test the strongest of riders. That said, the effort is worth it. The views along the climb are amazing and even better at the saddle.

The trail starts with a easy to moderate tread climbing through scrub oak and sage. You'll work your way back to the left and climb your first side hill. The side hill takes you over the ridge you're on and back down into the wash on the other side. Between this wash and the next ridge, you'll climb up and down through more scrub oak. You'll know the next climb is starting as you'll be on a steeply angled side hill, right to left and drop into a very short and steep wash. After this wash the climbing is almost constant all the way to the top. There are a few short somewhat flat areas and dips, but climbing is the name of the game from this point onward. You'll hit a few very short but steep pitches that will require some serious effort.

Towards the top at the second-to-last switch back (left hand) there is a bench in honor of OZ, A major contributor to the Prince Creek trail system. The bench is off to the right but hidden so you might not see it from the trail.

Once at the saddle you can go straight, downhill, onto Outie or right, uphill to the Crown. If you go right it's a push for a bit. You can access BLM Road 8320, which will give you access to Grand Father, Father and the rest of the lower trails. If you take Outie you can come back on North Porcupine or take Buckhorn down to the Rio Grande.
