“This is the traditional singletrack trail alternative to the Cherry Creek Trail.”— Eric Gardey
The upper part of the trail winds through groves of aspen and open meadows. Lower down, it gets drier and oak brush dominates. In the fall, this area is a great place to view aspen colors but is also popular with hunters.
The majority of the trail is a smooth ride without many technical aspects. However, at the 2.5 mile mark you'll find a very steep, rocky, and loose downhill that only lasts 0.15 miles. Just before the intersection with Cherry Creek Trail, you'll come across another short difficult section.
The West Elk Stock Driveway provides several interesting loop opportunities with the Cherry Creek Trail and Mansfield Ditch Trail (FR 2291). Two miles south of Forest Road 819, the Stock Driveway intersects the Cherry Creek Connector #2256.1D (which travels 1.4 miles east before joining the Cherry Creek Trail). From here, you can travel an additional 0.5 miles (via the Cherry Creek #2256 to Mansfield #2291 Singletrack Connector) to reach the Mansfield Ditch Trail (FR 2291).
