Trail shared by Michael Ahnemann

A short, fun trail, mostly downhill from Buck Gulch, leading to much additional riding in the area.

Description

This trail starts at an unimproved parking lot that you can drive most cars to, right at the top of Buck Gulch.

It quickly descends through a burn zone, with the same sandy, loose trail surface as much of the area. The scenery is great during the first 1/3 of the trail, as you're descending through the remnants of a burned forest, with open views as a result.

About halfway, you'll descend to a very minor creek crossing (with a makeshift log bridge) in deep forest with a sharp climb out of the creek.

After this, there's more green forest with very little burn remnants, then a short, flat blast through the forest to a big intersection with Strawberry Jack heading in two directions, and Homestead Trail.
