Description

This is the old service road that was used to get the heavy machinery up to the top of the mountain to build the ski resort.

This trail is easy to miss if you are not looking for it. The trail breaks from the Wolf Creek Canyon Trail at roughly the 2-mile mark. It is located on the south-southeast side of the Wolf Creek Canyon Trail about 2 miles from the Powder Mountain Road.
