Multiuse singletrack that follows Middle Fork Big Creek in the Sierra Madres in the Medicine Bow National Forest. Roots, and rocks that are sometimes unridable. May best be ridden as a loop taking the roads to the top and riding the trail down. See Medicine Bow National Forest map.

    I rode the upper part of this trail out and back, which is the opposite of what I wanted to do. That and breaking a pedal, my bike computer, and ripping the rear brake cable off of the frame killed my enthusiasm. Anyway, most of it was rideable, excluding the boulder fields (3 or 4) and a few trees to huck your bike over. The trail is narrow with intermittent protruding rocks, hills with turns on them, near the middle the trail all but disappears. I had as good of time as could be expected and I plan on returning, but this time start at the bottom. 4x4 or high clearance vehicle needed to get to the upper trailhead.* Review edited 6/4/2012
