The forest service is conducting a prescribed burn in the area of Ensign Gulch. Depending on weather they may burn between 110-450 acres. The trails in the area may be closed during the burn.

The views at the beginning of the trail are amazing but they quickly disappear once you get into the pines. Just after waypoint 2 it appears they’ve installed speed bumps, I can only speculate as to why. The rest of the trail is fun but I wouldn’t waste your time venturing to the end as it anticlimactically ends in a dense pine forest.

Fun little access trail to other areas... Nothing tough but pretty scenery and nice evergreen paths. Cuts across air force land a bit and some nice high-country meadows.

Love this trail as the entrance into the whole trail system. Like everything in 2023, it's more washed out and rutted than before but still quite easy, rating still seems intact. I ran this a few weeks ago and it had a lot of water, was dry as a bone today. Usually turn off at the Hay Creek East spur, but did go to the end a few weeks ago, the overlook is cool.
