“A steep alternate to completing the eastern most portion of Mountain Lion.”— Brian Smith
Electric Mountain Bikes Allowed
Be cautious at the first trail junction after starting out in this trail - there is a hiking only (no bikes allowed) Burro Trail that splits off to the right. The junction, like most others in the park, is well signed so take a moment to verify that you are on the correct trail.
This climb is almost as steep as the one on Mountain Lion/Burro Trail Connector but the trail is true singletrack by that point. Odds are that if you're riding this trail, you've just completed the first two thirds of the Mountain Lion trail which should mean that your legs will feel pretty shot. This climb wont help. For even the strongest climbers among us, this climb will be a challenge given the large roots and rocks that must be navigated.
Eventually, you'll top out and the trail will run into Mountain Lion again. Turn right to continue the clockwise direction on Mountain Lion, return to Forgotten Valley and gain access to Buffalo Trail.
