This trail along with Channel Lock
are used as entry or exit points into the Horseshoe trail network. Used as a starting point the trail offers a very steep climb with only a small downhill section at the end. The trail can get pretty steep in places for those who aren't used to climbing. It climbs mostly out in the open sagebrush with sweeping views.
The trail surface is mostly smooth dirt. Used as an exit point, the trail will leave you smiling for all of your hard work. Berms you struggled climbing up look a lot better going down. It flows fast going down through the turns and is well maintained by local user groups.
