“A great steep trail that can (should) be used to as an alternative to New World Gulch.”
— Colin Tuttle
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
