“A trail with multiple personalities.”— C R John
Continuing on Dixie Mine Trail, you'll crest the hill and start a fun, smooth descent down to the Thompson Peak jeep road, going past the abandoned Dixie Mine. Just a bit later the Dixie Mine Trail continues south off of the Thompson Peak road heading toward the Golden Eagle trailhead access. Up until this point the trail has been pretty easy stuff, but the pucker factor ratchets up just a little once you are south of the jeep road. This section is a fun swooping ride with more contour, twists, and a few steeps that make it more of an intermediate-level trail.
Old-timers may be disappointed that the trail has been widened and smoothed from the narrow, rocky singletrack ribbon it once was, but it's all part of sharing the trail with other users. The trail ends at the edge of the park, although the parking area for the trailhead is another half mile into the neighborhood.
