Description

This trail is a straightforward climb to Wildridge with views of Beaver Creek and Avon. The climb begins roughly halfway through the Avon Singletree Connector (ASC) at the bottom of a drainage. From here, work your way up the trail as it switchbacks its way up the ridge to reach a junction with PB&J and eventually Lee's Way Down.

While the grades are mostly moderate along this trail, expect to use your granny gears at least a few times!

If you don't think the intermediate/difficult Lee's Way Down is in the cards, this can provide a fun descent as well—just be careful of riders slogging their way up.
