Trail Information

Highlights

With its grassy hillsides, this off-road trail offers a different type of scenery than most of the trails within the Empire Loop. The Empire Loop is a network of trails just above the historic town of Empire. The area offers amazing alpine scenery and all types of off-road trails. This particular trail is good to combine when doing Bill Moore, Red Elephant, and Mill Creek.

A bit surprised when running this trail today. More off camber than I expected, maybe due to some washouts. We had three rigs-the end of the trail turn around area is a bit sketchy with more than 2. Fun trail, though.

This trail has become inaccessible due to snow. Depending on the winter, plan for an early to mid-July to where it feasible to drive again.
