Description

If you enjoy Nanny Creek and Elk Canyon singletrack, this is another option down Paine Basin. It is all road but has a nice flow to it. Though there is no singletrack, it does have nice views of Elk Canyon and Nanny Creek.

The trail is accessed from the rest area by the same primitive roads used for Nanny Creek and Elk Canyon and is the first road to the right after Nanny Creek if you are coming from the summit rest area. The last 100 yards of the trail are rather steep. As the trail ends, you begin Upper Gutterball, then Ranch Bypass, and then Lower Gutterball. The trails are not well marked but every way down has been a bike trail at one time or another.
