Description

A challenging singletrack climb that has some decent views and great riding if you can make it past the first 1.5 miles. The top comes out on Millville Canyon Road. The trail does not see heavy use so you can expect some solitary time as you make the ascent to the top.

From the trailhead, the climb starts immediately as you enter the singletrack trail on the right side. The first mile is mostly hardpack with a few ride-able rocky sections. It is not technically challenging but the constant climbing will check your fitness level pretty quick. Horseback riders seem to be the primary users of this trail and you'll frequently encounter evidence usually mid-trail.

Around one mile in, the trail has some large rocky sections that will have all but the most die-hard hillclimbers hike-a-biking sections of the trail. After 1.5 miles, the trail makes a switchback to the left and begins a long but worthwhile climb through the pine trees.

There are a couple of overgrown sections beginning around 2.3 miles and scattered throughout the rest of the trail. Breaks in the trees will provide some amazing views of the canyon below but in general the trail is pretty shaded throughout the entire section. The downhill side of the trail is pretty steep and will keep you on your toes throughout the climb. The last half mile flattens out and winds through the aspen trees until you tie into Millville Canyon Road.

On the descent, keep an eye out for soft sections of the trail as well as a few stumps and rocks hiding in the brush waiting to grab your tire anytime you lose focus. On the descent, pedaling is few and far between large sections of somewhat technical downhill. The trip back is your reward for the 4.1-mile climb.
