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.
