“Great way to add more fun to the Schoolhouse Gulch Trail.”— Scott Kahre
The first 0.4 miles are relatively flat and easy, following a long-abandoned logging roadbed. When you reach the end of this roadbed, find the new singletrack dropping off the hill on the left side. There is one steep, tight switchback here, then the trail connects to the old horse trail that follows the creek drainage. Note the orange blaze on the pine tree here; this is the BLM property boundary - please do not turn left and trespass.
Turn right and enjoy the moderately steep descent back to the Schoolhouse Gulch Trail along the creek.
