“A nice downhill alternative to the 409 trail.”— Adam Kagy
This doubletrack is Walrod Gulch. Keep climbing steadily up Walrod Gulch. Pass a singletrack on your left marked Walrod Gulch Cutoff to 409
Keep climbing, staying left at the split in the road, and then top out in a small field. There is a sort of four-way intersection in the road/trail here.
Turn left and keep climbing up a very steep hill called Heart attack hill for obvious reasons. There is a sign here marking the Walrod Gulch Trail #412. At the top is a nice shade tree and a good rest spot. Dont stay long, the climb has just started. Climb steadily up a small creek drainage and cross the creek a couple of times. At a Y intersection turn hard left onto the Walrod Spur Trail #405.2A, and keep climbing. (Right at the Y is an out for Double Top and Waterfall Creek). Keep spinning to the top and enter the edge of a small meadow. Head right and slightly down across the meadow.
Continue contouring for a short distance before you cross a small stream and climb steeply out and up, now in dark timber. When you reach the top you'll arrive at the end of 405.2A. Run straight ahead, now on Trail #405.
Head through some incredible wildflowers as you sidehill along. A short climb, a rocky little descent and another short climb brings you to another intersection with great views north and west.
Turn hard right onto 409.5A to finish up.
