The first 1/4 mile is dirt road. After crossing the cattle guard look left for the beginning of the single track. This is fun, rolling single track up and down along the river with narrow log/bridge crossings, Sets of doubles in of to the side of the single track and if you follow the GPS map you will get to descend the Lug track before ending back up at the Monte Carlo. When you find the Monte Carlo Have a blast rip'n over, off or around it.

    Really fun. Good "bang for your buck" trail. The only day I rode this trail the rain started to come down pretty hard so I can't speak to the views.

    First, the sections we rode had no trail markers, so couldn't figure out where Monte Carlo was. Although neomaps has it listed.
    Much of the lower section is in scrub oak. The first 1/2 mile is tight with low branches. Be sure to wear helmet and glasses.
    Some one-way trails (coming down, don't climb them). There are other ways to get up; the up hill trail farthest north is a good way. This is the first left as you ride south from the cattle guard.
    Trail is mostly smooth, with good flow.
    The "chute" trail (Luge?) is way-fun. with some jumps. (Don't think this is the Monte Carlo though) More trails as you go up the hill east.
    We tracked it, so you've got a bit more info to guide you.

    Pretty cool trail! Was just starting to ride when I hit this trail and remember that it wasn't too tough for a newb but both challenging enough and the single track here is what got me hooked on biking.Moderate climbing and pretty quick, rolling, smooth downhill. I also remember seeing this one dude totally eat S***! over the Monte Carlo. Cant wait to go back.

    Really nice singletrack with adequate climbs, winding and ripping fast sections. A number other singletracks exist and can be linked up for lots of miles.Rode a lot of trails without signage. Lots of fun.

    This is a shop and group ride fave. So many options, great top out, haul ass downhill, and fun for all. And a freakin Monte Carlo. Awesome.

    I rode this one on Mountain Fair weekend last year and was impresssed. If pressed for time, you can climb up the gravel road, it meets back up with the trail near a ranch gate. The first section follows the creek with some fun logs to jump over. The bottom section has some tight trail in the scrub brush and some off-camber whoop sections near the creek. Great ride with quick access from Carbondale.
