Description

Starting at the parking lot of the Big Creek Reservoir, the trail slowly climbs through a flowered and treed gully to eventually meet up with Uranium Road.

Most of the trail is rideable with short sections of punchy uphill and one longer section of hike-a-bike as the gully meets the top of the plateau. You'll encounter a few small creek crossings which are all easy to cross.

Overall, the trail is a moderately easy uphill climb allowing you to take in the views or it could be a fast and flowy downhill.
