Trail shared by Nick Wilder

This is an easy, lovely romp through meadows and aspens.

Description

This is a great hidden gem on top of the Uncompahgre Plateau. This skinny singletrack winds through aspen groves and wildflowers that can be chest-deep in late July. Occasionally, it has amazing views of the valley below. This is open range, so expect a cow or two, and beware of many of their patties!
