Description

Ernie's Trail - it's all in the name. Start the trail from the back of the Railroad Pass Casino via a short paved trail to the north. Once you cross the RR tracks turn right into the dirt, the singletrack starts about 25 feet and is not immediately obvious. Run a mile through rocky terrain before the climb gets steeper taking you to an amazing viewpoint. From there continue on to Mother or descend back on Ernie's or The Sh*t.
