Yeager Cabin Trail #111 lies in the drainage of Little Yeager Canyon. Ponderosa pine forest shades the trail as it gradually descends from Yeager Canyon Trail #28. The trail is very fun and mostly downhill. Continue on 111, pass through the opening in the fence at which point you'll reach a fire road. Go right at the fire road until you reach Little Yeager Canyon Trail #533.
This is where the real fun is! Trail #533 is nothing but downhill, with several dirt jumps built in case you want to get some serious air. Little Yeager Canyon Trail #533 goes west along a ridge. It then descends a steep series of switchbacks into Yeager Canyon.
Yeager Canyon supports an attractive riparian corridor, where deciduous hardwoods create a canopy of shade. Fall paints the canyon in brilliant shades of yellow and gold and is an excellent time of year to explore this and other trails in the Mingus Mountain area. Fortunate visitors may spot deer, elk, and a variety of birds. Black bears also make their home in this area. Rolled rocks along the trail show where bears have passed by, turning stones in search of grubs and other insects.
Take this all the way down to Highway 89A, make a right when you get there and pedal up to your car.
