“A fun alpine trail through aspen groves with great views.”— Tim Judkins
There are a few fun descents with root hopping and rock dodging. The climbs are not too strenuous, but some are pretty loose because the trail is shared with motorbikes.
Start at the trailhead off of Hwy 90 near the forest boundary. The trail drops quickly and some of the more technical riding is near the start. Buck Trail works its way north and then curves back south. There are a few aspen groves and singletrack sections through open fields. Head right when you reach the doubletrack section near the Powerline trail and the end near Hwy 90 is close by.
