“An access road to BLM Crown routes, though agricultural fields and up a steep ranching road.”— Mike Pritchard
You may find a few hike-a-bike sections as you climb through high mountain desert terrain. Expect scrub oak, sage fields, cactus patches, pinion, and juniper. The road is a fast way back down to the valley floor.
While this open space is in Eagle County, it's managed by Pitkin County Open Space & Trails. While the steep doubletrack will remain open into the future, a new parallel singletrack trail is scheduled to be constructed summer 2016 that will be a much better way to experience the property by bike.
Use this route to connect with Buckhorn Traverse via BLM Glassier to 8324 Route.
