The descending is worth it.

Need to Know

There is a spring around the mid-point of the trail, in a large meadow.

Description

Either direction you ride this, the climb has at least some sections that are ridiculously difficult. Especially if climbing in the clockwise direction. The trail climbs steeply up from the Lame Horse Trail #055 through dense aspen grove and fern understory. It simply is a beautiful trail. The grades are so steep in some spots on this end that even hike-a-bike is hard. It's all worth it, however, for the views and for the ripping descent down the other end.

Likewise, if you climb it in the counter-clockwise direction there will be some steep challenges, but it'll have its reward as well. The descent this way is shorter and steeper, but arguably comes with more rad factor. There are roots and old logs that provide small drops and the trail surface is somewhat loamy making for a real fun time.
