Review: Super fun trail with many different options. Can connect with Davos Trail or Son of Middle Creek if you want to make it longer. Does have some fairly technical climbs throughout.

Review: Hugs the northern hillside of the Vail Valley. Starts up Red Sandstone road and does an immediate climb up to an intersection with Buffher Creek trail (@ 2 mi.). Continue straight ahead for a steep and fast descent leading to a grunt of a climb back up through the aspens. Take a break at the overlook spot here you can see up and down valley in all directions. Descend down toward the Davos Trail and finish up in West Vail.

Review: THis is a great trail with good views and amazing singletrack. It can be looped with Sonof Middle Creek and Davos also, to make it longer.
