Amazing connector with stunning views that connects Gibson Jack to City Creek.

Description

This is a newly built connector between Cusick Creek and Gibson Jack with great views of Pocatello and the surrounding hills. This can easily be joined with numerous options on the City Creek Trails side to get in a longer outing.

The trail starts with a significant climb on either end with moderate grades. The Cusick Creek side has a number of switchbacks that can be fun when traveled either direction. The middle section of the trail maintains a fairly steady elevation with a few short steep sections. The trail offers some great views as it is cut into the side of some steeper slopes. There are also a few groves which you pass through in the drainages between hills which gives variety.
