Description

Starting at the end of Idlewild Road in Downtown Winter Park, the trail begins just on the right after the bottom of the old Idlewild Ski Area lift. The beginning is the steepest as you go up some very tight and rocky switchbacks. As you make your way up, the terrain will gradually change and you'll pass the top of the lift and eventually pop out on CR 80.

About as good a way as any to climb a thousand odd feet. Reminiscent of Nice Kitty in Buff Creek. Scenic as all hell and continuously interesting.

Excellent downhill. Some critical tight technical corners that you must execute or you roll down the cliff.
