Trail shared by Ryan Hickman

A beautiful undulating trail through big aspen groves.

Description

The trail begins on doubletrack, where you'll follow a contour through mature aspen groves and across several creek drainages. The trail is very manageable, though it should be avoided after heavy rain.

Lots of cows are present in this area, so be prepared to deal with their byproduct on the trail and watch out for bulls! The trail tread is heavily impacted in some areas by the local cows. You'll know you're at the end of the trail when you encounter a small cow camp.
