“A cruiser singletrack winding though open valleys.

Fall Colors · River/Creek · Wildflowers · Wildlife
Running along a wide open valley with nice smooth single track, this trail is a nice break from the more technical Apex Trail
. This extension connects from the Sluicebox
trail to the Apex Trail
and Enchanted Forest
, making for a nice loop. This trail system is very popular with mountain bikers. A new parking lot and restroom were added in the fall of 2015.
This area offers a nice variety of trails from steady climbs on the frontside trails of Argos Trail
and Pick N' Sledge
to the more heavily forested hills of the Enchanted Forest
, this area is a beauty and makes for a nice getaway. This trail is a nice, smooth singletrack and is primarily used to connect some of the upper trails over and across a valley and hillside and to provide another way to get over to the Enchanted Forest
and Apex Trail
and the Grubstake Loop
Flora & Fauna
Elk are abundant in the fall, with bugling ringing off the hills. Plenty of mule deer roam the hillsides. There is a creek along the Apex Trail
which runs most of the year. Mountain lions have been seen here. You'll cross through valley meadows and a variety of pine forests.
