Description

This trail rides very well in both directions, connecting Hummingbird Lode meadow to Van Horn Park area. Watch out for the one rocky outcropping that offers an expert level technical challenge, or a hike-a-bike depending on your comfort level with exposure.

When you reach the overlook, no matter which direction you are traveling, you'll know. This is a great spot to take a break and soak in the solitude and beauty of the Hunter Creek Valley.
