Description

This trail will be CLOSED to all users from June 1 to November 1, 2020 by order of the USFS due to a large water pipe replacement project on FS 128.

This is a wide forest service road, not a proper MTB trail. You're wasting the vertical you earned if you ride this downhill. Instead go down Broken Thumb, Twisted Ankle etc. through the Idlewild area for much more fun. This is a reasonable way to climb up to that intersection on the Corona Pass Road. It is very steep (25% grade) in sections but smooth.
