Description

This was the first trail in the Nanny Creek Trail System and part of the Wild Rockies race series. 2.3 miles of fun. This trail could be done as a loop by coming up the dirt maintenance road that parallels I-80 to the trailhead in less than an hour including drive time.

You can also connect to other trails like Lupine Trail or Six Mile Road. Gutterball ends here but it is one-way downhill. This is also a good trail if there is snow up high. The trailhead is a wooden sign off of a dirt road.
