Trail shared by Tom Robson

A good alternative to the doubletrack, this trail offers some good wildlife sighting potential.

Description

This proves a great descent, but I prefer it as a singletrack alternative climb to Towers Trail. This trail is steep and there are several sections that contain 2'+ rock steps and some narrow spots.

If you prefer to stay off doubletrack, this trail is a great way to connect many of the trails in Horsetooth Mountain Park.
