“A smooth and scenic singletrack along St. Louis Creek.”— Kristen McGlynn
In the direction mapped, it starts out with nice alpine scenery, then narrows down to twisting singletrack through the woods. At the end, there is a nice bench at a viewpoint where you can look over the creek and valley with Byers Peak in the background. If you are lucky, you might even spot a moose in the marshland below.
This trail can be combined with Creekside Trail for a nice, easy loop or runners can connect to Chainsaw and Zoom for a larger loop of the area.
