“Climbing focused trail that winds through oak and sagebrush to big Mount Sopris views and the top of Skull Bucket Trail.”— Mike Pritchard
Most of the trail provides for a great climb, with some brief flat and down sections to roll you into the next bit of pedaling. Tight corridor vegetation will require your attention, especially with wider handlebars.
This trail also rides well in the downhill direction although most riders will use it as a climb. About halfway up the trail, you can find the Dinkle Link Trail, which connects to the Prince Creek / West Sopris Creek Divide Trailhead and Parking Lot.
