This trail is often snow-covered until July and then again around October.

As a reminder, please be mindful of other trail users and yield to uphill traffic.

Description

This is a great shorter trail near the Engineer Mountain Trail and Colorado Trail that provides a lot of bang for the buck (the descent feels longer than it should for the climb). It makes for a nice and quick loop from the top of Coal Bank Pass.

To get there, park at Coal Bank Pass and ride up Pass Trail. Take a right on the Engineer Mountain Trail then another right on Coal Creek. Follow the obvious trail to the right off of EMT. Keep right at the next split where Coal Creek heads right and Deer Creek heads left. Awesome descent! Enjoy! Once on the road, ride back up to the starting point at the top of Coal Bank Pass.
