I thought this trail was hard to follow. In some sections the trail seems to disappear, even with a GPS that told me I was right on the trail. Some of the downhill through the woods is straight down, no cross slope with bad erosion happening. Not well planned. I also ran into a fresh mountain lion kill up there. I wish there were more trails around Idaho Springs as options to the crowded front range, but I never really get the urge to go back to Barbour.
