Closed to bikes on ODD weekend days.

Runner Notes

This is a relatively popular mountain bike trail, and may want to be avoided on EVEN weekend days.

Description

From the top of the Mayhem Gulch Trail take a right and continue climbing. There will then be a long descent to Elk Creek where there will be a bridge. Climb again and enjoy the views as you contour along. The only trail split is for the Evening Sun Trail which will ultimately take you to the same place. When open, you can take a left onto the Elk Range Trail and make this into a loop.
