Description

Find the start of this trail to the left of the deck facing Holy Cross Mountain, directly across from the Eagle Bahn gondola terminal. This first part of the trail was rebuilt in 2021 and is a fantastic cruise through wildflowers and aspen. The trail steepens and makes a hard left turn into the canyon. Follow the creek down mostly easy riding on smooth trail. There are some minor technical difficulties near the end, but easy to walk through if you're the cautious type.

Though the trail is not hard, it feels much more remote than most Vail rides, and is something of an adventure.
