A very steep trail featuring loose sand and roots.

Description

Hudson begins with a small, shallow uphill at an intersection with Stairway to Heaven and quickly turns into a rapid descent towards Prayer Flag Road. The trail is very steep and mainly consists of loose, sandy terrain. Be aware of the roots you'll encounter as this bench cut singletrack whips you down the mountain.

Although there are a few decent vistas and aspen groves along Hudson, the trail is better for running than it is viewing. Enjoy!
