Amazing trail for hiking or biking. Great drop off points to Agate Creek, Greens Creek, and extension trails going to Silver Creek and The Rainbow Trail. Tons of uphill climb the first 3 miles but after that its smooth sailing above treeline for a miles, then a drop down into the trees and an epic downhill section for about 15 miles. You then drop on to Marshall Pass and can go down to the highway, Poncha Creek, or Silver Trail. Dopeness.
