“Singletrack trail in Idlewild trail system through dense pine and aspen forests and along streams.”— Mike Davis
Take the trail up through the forest which goes up over the top and then drops down to a couple small river crossings. Parallel the river until it crosses back on a long, low bridge with fabulous views of the Indian Peaks.
Heading back uphill along a wider path, you'll leave the river basin. Once you reach the turn off for Ditch Trail turn right and follow that back around to Ridge Trail where you'll re-enter private property and head back to the trailhead.
