Need to Know [Suggest Changes]

The trails to the west of Rimrock Drive are very wet and often flooded throughout the spring.

Description [Suggest Changes]

From the main parking area, go south across Greenwood Road. The beginning of the trail is difficult to see, but it is right next to the road and drops down the steep bank.

To begin with, the trail is narrow, rocky and steep but it quickly levels out. When you get to the first trail intersection, turn left (east). For several hundred yards, this trail runs with Trail 10. You'll also parallel Greenwood for a while, until you come to a gate. At the gate, Trail 102 - South Trail Green Loop cuts south again and Trail 10 crosses Greenwood again and goes north.

You'll move through a wooded area and then parallel the railroad tracks. After heading down a hill, you'll find yourself at Trail 123 - Railroad Loop and some lovely graffiti. At this point, the trail turns west and begins to climb back to the top of the bluff. There is a great view of the rock wall built by the CCC along this section. At the top of the bluff, you'll cross Rimrock Drive. If you're short on time, you can head (roughly) south on Rimrock Drive and return to the parking area. To continue on Trail 10, cross over Rimrock and continue west.

Moose are fond of this area so be on the lookout, particularly during the fall rutting season. As the trail begins to angle back to the south, you can connect with Trail 122 Connector for a longer loop, or keep going south to reconnect with the parking lot. This area gets boggy in the spring so take bug spray. The last section of trail is very narrow singletrack and will come out at the parking area.
