Out and back only, so riding this is actually 4.0 miles. Mostly flat, but extremely rocky with wet areas and springs. This wide, high elevation trail (above 5000 feet) travels through an alpine-like environment, with a few spruce and fir trees, grassy meadows, and dense heath shrubs like rhododendron and blueberry. Berries ripen in August, when the road is also open to 4wd vehicles. Intersects Shining Rock Wilderness (no bikes) which is named for a spectacular white quartzite rock outcropping which can be seen from the trail at one point.
