Trail description: The majority of Segment 5 is in Legal Wilderness (No Bikes), however the section that isnt provides an excellent out and back, especially during the fall season, as the area is highlighted with aspen groves.
That’s a really excellent stretch of trail and remains surprisingly underused. I love the initial climb and the scenery once up high. A great way to enjoy the season without battling the crowds on the other side of 285!
