“Better trail and preferred option to the Mule Trail”
— Nick Wilder
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
