“Four-miles of fast and fun alpine descending!”— Kem Kough
The trail begins with a steep descent for almost half a mile before letting off. At the one-mile mark, the canyon pinches down into some technical sections and some more steeps. There are a few very rideable rock ledges after you pass under the large dead tree that has fallen over the trail, but this will hardly slows experts down because the trail is so fast - this is a local's favorite run to compete for Strava times.
You probably won't have much for company in the way of hikers or uphill bikers. But there could be livestock, so watch out. Near the bottom, the singletrack approaches Nanny Creek. There are nice aspens and some seasonal stream crossing that won't get you bike muddy. As the grade mellows out, you can enjoy a cool-down coast, or pedal to keep the speed up till you reach the gate at Pequop Ranch.
The ranch is private, but the owner has given permission for mountain bikers to pass through. Just make sure to close any gates you pass through.
