General Description

Taking this route from top down is an enjoyable down hill cruise with some short uphill sections and some outstanding views of the area. It is mostly in lodgepole pine forest and has some meadows. For safety, bicycles must yield to hikers, who in turn 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 annually to avoid disturbing calving elk. The trail will make a great mountain bike trail loop for either direction. There is no water available along the trail so plan accordingly.

Directions from Carbondale: Take Hwy. 82 five miles north of Carbondale to Cattle Creek and follow signs stating Cottonwood Pass. 1/2 mile past summit of Cottonwood Pass turn right on Red Table Road 514. In about 10 miles turn right on to road with sign saying: "Locked Gate 6 mi." Parking lot is 200 feet ahead. This secondary road beyond parking lot is 4WD only. Follow arrowed carsonite posts for 2.7 miles to start of single track trail.
