Description

If starting from Lower Loop or Meadow Loop Trail, follow the sign to this trail along the old narrow guage railroad bed. Zip along this for a few hundred yards, turn right down the switchback to a crosshill trail that gets more challenging. Carefully ride across the small arroyo, down to a water crossing, then back up. There's a coal deposit from the old train days near the switchback. Notice it?
