This is a popular bike loop route from Carbondale to Redstone. There is very little water along the trail. You can park in different locations to make the ride longer or shorter.
Directions from Carbondale: Travel west at the stoplight in Carbondale. Follow road #108 for 7.4 miles. Turn left onto the dirt road that immediately goes downhill. The road travels for 2.5 miles to a stream crossing, then uphill for about a mile to a pass. In another half mile take the left fork onto road #305 and drive until you see a double gate on your right, the road is 4WD from here on if you choose to drive any further. Do not attempt to drive it if the road is wet. Road #305 gets very slippery when wet. In another mile you will come to the parking area at the trailhead.
June through September
(NOTE: The trail may be inaccessible due to snow in the Spring and Winter months.)
