Trail shared by John Ives

A fun and fairly smooth downhill ride from the top of American Eagle lift.

Features -none-

Closed to uphill and hiking traffic.

Description

A well-maintained, trail bike friendly singletrack with a bit of pedaling as it descends Copper Mountain to the Center Village. The trail is generally smooth, but the occasional rocky section and numerous hairpin S-turns will keep riders busy.

Start just below the top of the American Flyer lift. This is the trailhead for Elk Alley and the Red Tail trails. Follow the Elk Alley signs down the mountain.
