“A short, very technical, aspen-lined loop off of the Peaks Trail.”— D L
Electric Mountain Bikes Unknown
The short loop climbs the Peaks Trail to Masontown Trail (No. 9077), then connects to the Mount Royal Trail (No. 1).
Need to Know
The trail contours through several creek crossing and a particularly wide, boggy section of trail. Hopefully, the Forest Service will restore this area. There is a bypassing trail above the bog on the left, although it is quite rooty, and slippery.
Shortly after this bog, Hattie's Trail (No. 9078) forks to the right. There is only a through post (with arrows in both directions) for the Masontown Trail at this y-intersection.
The trail begins to climb quite steeply along a creek. After a short distance, there is another fork in the trail. Take the right fork (the left climbs more steeply, and slightly higher up to Mount Royal Trail). In a few hundred feet, intersect Mount Royal Trail (No. 1).
Turn right and descend a very technical mile back to the Temple Trail recpath. Just before the pavement, the Temple Trail social singletrack connects back to the Peaks Trail trailhead.
