“A climb up a doubletrack climb puts you at the top of a fun descent.”— Michael Klimek
Begin this run with a ascent up a doubletrack from the Pauley Creek intersection to the top of the ridge where Big Boulder trail starts. Some sections are pretty steep, some are loose, some are both.
Once you get to the top of the ridge, continue onto the Big Boulder Trail. You'll begin a well-earned descent here. The trail is mostly smooth though a little rugged in places and it weaves through exposed sections and the woods.
This trail ends at the intersection with Third Divide Trail.
