Family Friendly When paired with a climb on the parallel Prince Creek Trail, you can put together an easy ~3-mile loop.

This is a one-way downhill only biking trail.

Description

Find the start of this trail at the top of Prince Creek Trail (climbing only for bikes) or the bottom of Father of Ginormous (downhill only trail) or bottom of Monte Carlo (which is a two-way trail).

This descent provides a fun way to finish your ride on the Crown BLM trails in the Prince Creek area. The trail is parallel to the Prince Creek Trail, but shares a couple short sections with that trail—beware of two-way traffic at the large bridges and the open meadow section.

Enjoy a few small optional jumps, wood bridge crossings, and a short bermed gully section as you drop elevation on your way back towards Carbondale. The trail finishes at the "Bull Pen" Trailhead Parking Area on Prince Creek Rd.

Low hanging fruit or Oaks in this case.  Some describe this section as the Bucket area, as theres a old rusty bucket hanging in the trees.  Watch your head if you're tall here.
