Description

The upper half is fun and fast singletrack similar to the (upper) Cold Creek Trail. The lower part transitions into fire road. This is not a popular segment because it puts you at Pioneer Trail - where there are not any great trails to link into.

A much better way to end the Cold Creek Trail is to either link into the Powerline Trail or continue over to the Corral Trail area via Railroad Grade Trail. That said, if you want credit for riding the entire Cold Creek Trail, you should tag this onto your ride.
