Description

When ridden in concert with the Oro Grande Trail and the old Tenderfoot Trail, this trail makes a great short loop ride that finishes with a 2.0 mile descent to the Straight Creek Road. The second portion of the trail (past the intersection where you can detour onto the Tenderfoot Trail) is fun rolling singletrack with a good climb and amazing views.

This trail is best ridden by ascending on this trail then onward to the Wide Open Trail #9508 and over to the Frey Gulch area where additional trails and loop opportunities abound.
