A fantastic singletrack climb or descent to a large meadow with sweeping views of Coal Basin and the Elk Mountains.

Overview

Description

The trailheads in the Thompson Creek area can be cryptic, and this one is no exception.

From the Thompson Creek Road #306, there is absolutely no sign of a trail. Leave the road and walk downhill through the grass until you get to the creek. On the other side of the creek, you'll see a very obvious trail and forest service sign.

Cross the creek and follow the steady but rideable singletrack up through the dark timber. You'll eventually wrap around and go in and out of meadows as the grade mellows.

Eventually, you'll come to a big open meadow and will see the Coal Basin Trail - North dropping down into the woods to the Coal Basin Trail - South section. This first trail section makes a great descent - fast and flowing. This can be made into a big adventure loop: Coal Basin Trail - North, Coal Basin Trail - South, Dexter Park Trail #1953, Lake Ridge Lakes Trail #2093, Braderich Creek Trail #1952 (Tall Pines).
