A lollipop trail with some relatively easy climbing and relatively amazing views.

Overview

Dogs: Leashed

Description

From its start off of The Plagueround, this newly built (2017) trail descends on nice switchbacks to a bridge crossing. From there, the trail climbs at a mellow grade to the pop section of the lolli. From that intersection, you can go both ways, but it's recommended to ride this counterclockwise.

The first push on this climb is quite steep, but the going isn't too hard thanks to some very well-built switchbacks. Be sure not to stand too much while climbing, however, as the dirt here can be very loose. Finally, after climbing for ~400ft, the trail tops out at 7,400ft and shows awesome views of Courthouse Mountain, as well as the San Juans (like Mt. Sneffels).

From the top, the trail descends back to the pop intersection you already (obviously) encountered. This section of trail is built mostly in a drainage, and has a few very steep switchback turns that take you over roots. Let it rip here and make sure you don't let the loose dirt get the best of you.
