Description

From Ophir Mountain Road #951.A, you'll see a sign for this trail on the north side of the doubletrack. The trail descends through a tight pine forest for 0.7 miles when it crosses the Robert Foote Trail #9047.

From the intersection with Robert Foote Trail #9047, head north on a sandy singletrack between the pines. Follow signs for Trail 9155 north on a relatively flat, sandy trail. Roughly 0.2 miles in, there is an intersection that is marked with a small cairn. Take the left (head north).

Shortly after an intersection with 9155B, there is a really nice, twisting descent through some dense forest. Keep an eye out for a 12-18" log drop, and the trail opens to a clear-cut area.

The trail then continues down with some great views of Lake Dillon to the intersection with East Meets West (FS Trail #9042) .

Be very careful in the clear-cut area. There are numerous stumps on the side of the trail that will catch your foot if you're not careful.

Reminds me of tree skiing! Narrow, twisty singletrack through the trees with a few steep turns and fun features
