Description

This trail starts from the Polecat Gulch parking lot and begins with a short climb up the ridgeline. Once on the ridgeline, the trail joins an old doubletrack and the tread will vary in width for a while.

You'll then descend into a creek bottom and join onto a nice singletrack trail that wraps around a hill and then ascends dry creek. There will be some old roads that cross the route, so make sure to follow the numerable signs. Then you'll climb up and around into the Daniels Creek drainage before connecting with the Sweet Sweet Connie trail.

This trail can be ridden in either direction and is an excellent way to extend the descent on Sweet Sweet Connie.
