Trail Information

Highlights

This is a great little trail that feels a little like a rollercoaster at a kids theme park. The large hill goes up and over a large rock formation and when you drop down on the other side of the hill, there is a beautiful meadow with a creek that you will cross on your way to Grouse Road (FS 354).

This trail is open, however, CAUTION. Colorado weather is unpredictable this time of year and there may be the occasional fresh snow fall or mud and melting snow. This trail is in an area of the state where snowfall levels have dropped for the season and the majority of the trails are dry, muddy and/or only have a small bit of snow on them. Again, please use caution if traveling on these trails until the dryer season.

This is a really fun short section. The hill is definitely quite the roller coaster. If you want to have fun on it I would advise having someone stand at the top to make sure nobody else is coming from the other side. You cannot see oncoming traffic until you are at the very top of the hill. We ran it quick but cautiously on our SxS's but last year I saw a lot of dirt bikes flying over it as a jump, so be careful. The water hole was about 10 inches deep today.

This little trail really is fun, you really should take it slow at the top and watch for traffic. There are no major changes to this trail to report.
