Nice smooth singletrack, and the easiest way from the west up to Fat Tire Traverse.

Description

This trail is the easiest way up to the Fat Tire Traverse, and also to a high point on the 8th Street Motorcycle Trail. While it is a fun descent if you can get it when it's not crowded, you usually end up stopping so much to let people by as they ascend that it wrecks your rhythm.

Better to pedal up this and then head east on Fat Tire Traverse, or drop down towards Lower Hulls Gulch Trail on the 8th Street Motorcycle Trail.
