Trail is actually a 4x4 road located exactly where the trail head marker is. There is parking for about 10 cars at the trail head. If your planning on driving this trail, you better have some clearance, as spots get pretty rough. Beautiful views of Gray's Peak. Steady incline, yet you don't feel it, as it is pretty gradual. Great for dogs because the trail follows a creek up.

Good climb along a mountain stream. Ends at a water pipe.

Beautiful are but trailhead was impossible to find. We just parked the car and started walking. Ended up in the awesome meadow with great views but probably couldn't find it again if I tried.

It was unclear what/where this trailhead was meant to be. Ended up riding double track roads or abandoned mining roads for a bit, looking for the "trailhead" but couldn't figure it out. Riding toward the Grays trailhead was nice with pretty creek views.
