Overview

Buttery smooth trail with lots of fun features on slickrock down to the Gunnison River overlook, then a long but runnable climb back up to Little Park Rd.

Runner Notes

This trail is generally quiet, but is shared with bikers and moto traffic, so keep at least one ear open at all times and though you have the right of way, it is usually easier for you to step off than a dirt bike (and much more LNT).
