This trail travels through open meadows and aspen. It is an easy hike, but there is very little water along the way. Be sure and treat any water that you may drink. The area is range for cattle, so be sure to leave the gates in the position you find them. This is a popular bike trail. Most people enter through South Thompson Trail and exit out Braderich Trail.
Directions from Carbondale: From Carbondale travel south on Hwy. 133 to Redstone. Turn right at the upper end of the coke ovens and travel about three miles on the Coal Basin road. After you pass the third cattle guard, the trailhead is on your right.
May through September
