Trail shared by Paul Stahlschmidt

Another great Rick's Basin singletrack option for extending your run.

Description

Quakie Ridge is one of the longer Rick's Basin trails, and also one of the more strenuous. It climbs to over 8,000 ft. along a ridge that forms the north side of Rick's Basin, before dropping back down to end near the starting elevation. The grades are mostly sustained and manageable, though a pair of short and steep climbs provide plenty of punch if you want to get your heartrate up.

It doesn't matter which way you take this route, it's a joy in either direction.
