Description

Not a beginner trail because of its length in remote terrain but it is doable for beginner mountain bikers who are looking for an adventure and who want a taste of backcountry riding. There are a couple of steep chutes that can be walked, but it is a great trail overall. The trail work done by the Forest Service, Telluride Mountain Club, and locals made it great!
