Start at the top of the Elk Camp Gondola and climb towards the top of the Meadows lift. The trail then heads up the Turkey Trot ski run before diving into the woods and heading west. Once the trail crosses the Elk Camp work road it is fun singletrack all the way to the intersection with the Cross Mountain Trail
. This intersection is basically the high point of the Cross Mountain Trail
Head left on Cross Mountain Trail
to access the west side trails, or head right to get back to the lift-accessed trails.
