Overview

Description

Gunsight Trail is a newly built trail (as of June 2015) that offers up a longer descent through as extensive aspen forest with swooping switchbacks, and fast flowy turns. Start by riding Lupine Trail out to near where the 2nd main singletrack starts, but instead of taking a left off the doubletrack stay on the doubletrack and keep climbing. Eventually, there will be a singletrack to your left and the start of the Gunsight Trail.

Enjoy the fast and flowy downhill through pristine aspen groves. Toward the middle, you'll find yourself on a short but pumpy climb through a few switchbacks, but the downhill soon resumes for a fun and fast descent toward the bottom.
