Taking this route from the top down is an enjoyable downhill cruise with some short uphill sections and some outstanding views of the area. The trail mostly passes through lodgepole pine and an occasional meadow. The trail will make a great mountain bike loop trail in either direction. There is no water available along the trail, so plan accordingly. For your safety, bicycles must yield to hikers, who in turn should yield to horses. Keep your speed down and ride safely. To protect wildlife please leave your dog at home. This is an important wildlife area for elk. This trail should not be ridden prior to June 21st to avoid disturbing the calving elk.
