Need to Know

Lots of small creek crossings.

Description

The trail starts out on doubletrack for the last gnarly bit of road off South Thompson Creek Road #305. Then you reach the singletrack. Climb through old aspen groves, dropping in and out of numerous small creek drainages. After 3.6 miles of climbing and 1,000 feet of vert, you'll reach the saddle looking down onto Braderich Creek Trail #1952 (Tall Pines) and Coal Basin.

Combine this with Braderick Creek Trail for the featured ride Tall Pines.
