Some Mud - Very over grown, some parts of the first 2 miles completely ruined from horse traffic. History

A great steep trail that can (should) be used to as an alternative to New World Gulch.

Description

Take a right off of New World Gulch Trail #50 at the junction after the two creek crossings. Here, the trail will go into the stream for about 50 feet.

This trail takes you up past a small bouldering area, and to the base of Mt Ellis.
The trail is steep and narrow, and some singletrack sections might be too deep to pedal up.

Towards the top, the trail opens up a bit and eases up. After that, you'll have a short downhill to the field where the trail meets up with New World Gulch Trail #50.

Anyone who says this is a good mt bike trail has their head up their, well you know. The comment that horses have destroyed the trial is wrong, Backcountry Horsemen have repaired this trail every year. The trail is being destroyed by Mt bikes spreading the mud down the trail making it impassible for hikers. Thanks. Do not advertise this as a good trail for biking; every biker I have met is sorry they tried it. Aug 9, 2018
