The recorded track shown on AllTrails is the left branch. I took the right branch (splits at unmarked post abt 1 mi in) as described by the Ouray trails website. Only went 5k out + back. Nice + shady in the morning, mostly good trail surface, almost a beginner trail for this area. Three good spots for the dogs to get water. Saw bear track on approach road and heard one in the woods. Pack hunters loading up to go in as I was leaving (September 12). Wear orange.

Wonderful trail. Great to start early. Driving to the trail head does require a higher clearance vehicle and 4x4 wouldn't hurt. Bear country for sure but I didn't see any today. Great trail for dogs, even in the heat of the day.
