This trail follows an old road which has been closed to motorized travel. The main attraction to both hikers and bikers is a small cabin at the end of the trail. The Line Shack offers a good place for lunch and view scenery. The Line Shack is a public use cabin, please respect the property and others whom use it.
The extensive open meadows and ski runs from the old ski area (Meadow Mountain) offer good wildflower viewing.
The parking area is surrounded by a wooden fence. The fence is to designate a nonmotorized play area.
Directions: From Beaver Creek, Follow I-70 to the Minturn exit (#171). Travel south for 300 feet, the Holy Cross Ranger District is located here. Park in the dirt parking lot. The trailhead is located by the white house.
