Description

Follow directions to TH #1435 and continue past that TH 0.25 miles to TH #1434. Trail #1434 appears to have once been a logging road and is now an OHV route/trail open to all except highway vehicles.

The trail starts off generally level for 0.25 miles and then begins a long meandering descent through open forest. The grade is generally moderate with loose dirt/gravel tread. Fantastic views across the Arkansas River Valley to the Collegiate Peaks and the Sawatch Range are seen along much of the trail within 0.5 miles of the TH.
