“A steep climb on old doubetrack above Glenwood Canyon.”— Eric Gardey

After 0.4 miles of climbing, the road will fork. Burnt Tree Ridge is the right fork.
The next mile or so of climbing is brutally steep, but thereafter lets up significantly. A stock pond will be on your left at 1.8 miles. This is the point to which the trail will loop back to. For now, stay to the right.
At 2.1 miles, East Burnt Tree goes off to the right. Check this out if you are really adventurous.
After climbing through the oak brush, you'll have one more short, brutal climb before hitting the high point at 3.0 miles. Here, look for a faint trail off to the left. This may be hard to pick out at times but it generally follows the ridge line.
After a bit of riding, you'll drop down into a draw and a more distinct doubletrack. Follow this doubletrack back to the main stem at the stock pond. Head back to the trailhead the same way you came up.
