Trail shared by Tom Robson

A nice, consistent climb with great alpine scenery towards the top.

Description

This trail trends steadily uphill. It's mostly easy ascending on nice smooth singletrack, although it gets slightly steeper as you get closer to the end. About 3/4 of the way through the trail, the forest opens up with beautiful alpine scenery and widely spaced aspens that make for nice views behind you to the north.

The trail pops out at the dirt road (Ridge Connector) which allows you to run to the top of the ridge, but that's not recommended. Instead, take a quick right to follow Root Canal or right on Morning Gloria.
