Description

Despite being only a mile long, this trail is a blast!

Finding it is tricky: from the top of Blue Grouse, take a right turn on Mule Deer Trail, go 100 feet, then immediate left (west) on this trail.

The trail is level, fast, and very playful. It's on the side of a very rocky slope, but excellent trail construction has made for fun little rock gardens with (usually) a perfectly smooth path winding through. It continuously looks like it's going to be tough, but magically a smooth line appears at the last minute.

This is a much better option (and saves vertical) when doing the Mule Deer Trail.
