Description

First off, this trail requires a long trip to reach the start.

Prior to the trailhead, you must climb over 2,000 vertical feet. After this climb, which you may do from either direction, you reach the intersection with a posted trail marker (wood post with hardscrabble trail sign).

This is a real kicker as the start of this trail is a nearly straight vertical hike-a-bike. BE CAREFUL on this as there are small and large, loose rocks and a very steep climb with a bike.

From this point, you are nearly on top of the mountains. The trail is all downhill from here.

The trail continues as all singletrack that weaves through the higher alpine forest. There are some rock and root areas and one steeper, seemingly washed out area that can become a little tricky. After this, you cross a stream and the trail mellows out a bit.

The trail ends as it connects back into Spring Creek Road directly across from Reynolds Wrap. This is an easy place to connect to either Itch or Scratch.

Gnarly. A few trees down. Lots of low branches. Could be epic with a bit more work and a reasonable ascent.

Great singletrack that's well worth the effort to get up there. The hike-a-bike at the beginning sucks, but it's pretty short. Once you start going downhill, the trail is great! Jul 12, 2017
