Description

This trail has a steep, short climb in the beginning up to the Trace Ridge Peak then an almost 1000 foot descent down to the Trace Ridge trailhead parking lot. It is mosly hard pack clay with loose rocks and large bolders mixed in. Lots of erosion on the trail creates a fun more rugged downhill.
