Closed until the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend for Big Horn Sheep habitat.
This trail is a section of the Gunnison Spur of the Colorado Trail: The Entire MTB Route. It provides two-wheeled travelers with some great technical riding all the way from Taylor Park to the North Bank Campground along the Taylor River.
From the get-go, the trail climbs from ~9,500' to ~10,500' on tightly forested terrain. Keep your wits about you, this section is very steep and will most likely be very rutted from moto traffic.
Once you've reached 10.5k', the trail generally contours through dense pine forest, then hits another brutal climb. This time around a peak just north of Matchless Mountain.
From here, the trail descends into intermittent tree-covered meadows, then rolls over USFS Rd 748B, passing Matchless along the way.
Continue due south through around an epic meadow and continue contouring. From here, you'll begin a very steep descent into Ute Gulch, which leads you to an epicly steep climb, just south of South Matchless Peak. From here, the trail descends into the beautiful Doctor Park.
