When traveled in concert with the Oro Grande Trail
and the old Tenderfoot Trail
, this trail makes a great short loop run that finishes with a 2.0 mile descent to the Straight Creek Road. The second portion of the trail (past the intersection where you can detour onto the Tenderfoot Trail
) is fun rolling singletrack with a good climb and amazing views.
This trail also makes a nice connection at the top with the Wide Open Trail #9508
to continue over to the Frey Gulch area for longer loop opportunities.
