Runner Notes

There are signs warning about recreating near the rockpile at the upper portion of this trail. Probably best to avoid chewing on any rocks or eating any of the nearby raspberries.

Description

This scenic detour takes off to the north when the Gunsight Pass Road begins to ascend, and intersects the road right above the Lower Upper Loop trail. This short extension is a great way to get a little more singletrack in while descending the Gunsight Pass Road. It provides especially good views of Oh Be Joyful falls in the spring and early summer.
