Description

This trail starts as an ATV trail so it will be wide and mellow in the beginning, but the trail transforms into a nice singletrack about a mile or so in and leaves the ATVs behind.

From this point, you'll very shortly come to a series of switchbacks that will climb steeply putting you onto a nice contour that will take you gradually up the drainage. At about mile 8 there is a large avalanche zone that can fill up with trees so beware of this section since it can be a little confusing. Keep on heading up the drainage and you'll come to the trail again. Once past the avalanche zone the trail makes its final steep climb to the top of the drainage and the pass. From here you have commanding views and lots of options depending on where you want to head to. Blackmare Creek can be used for a short loop or you can drop into the East Fork Kennally Creek for a long loop.

This trail is more likely to be free of trees later in the season.
