Family Friendly Good ride for experienced beginners and intermediate riders.

Closed to uphill and hiking traffic.

Upper third of the trail is closed due to construction near the top of the American Eagle lift. See Coppercolorado.com for a summer trail map with the temporary access point.

Description

This trail makes for a great intermediate ride that's great for trail bikes. It starts at the top of the American Eagle lift and overlaps with the Elk Alley trail as the two get a shared start. After a few turns, they separate and Red Tail heads to the right for several fun miles of straightaways and turns as riders work down to the village below.
