Runner Notes

One of the most popular trails in the area for hikers and vacationers. It is a very moderate trail with a couple rocky and rooty sections.

Description

Starting at the TH, you'll ascend to a "T" and go right and continue to climb a bit to a shelf section with a couple benches and great views before descending toward Bailey Canyon.

The descent is the most interesting bit of trail and winds through some tight trail in the pines and aspen. You'll again find yourself at a junction and going right will follow the Osha Trail, whereas heading straight will lead you to camping off of FR 568.

Ascending to the top of the trail leads you to the FR (Osha Trail Rd) where you'll turn right and find your way back to the singletrack near the connector to the TH. This is signed well and you should have no problem finding the trail on either end.

Flora & Fauna

Mostly ponderosa pines with some oak and aspen. Deer and elk can be found on this trail very often in the morning and evening.
