Trail shared by Brice Pollock

A long, gradual descent from Mt. Morrison Ridge.

Brice Pollock
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

Starts out blue-black, but then becomes blue-green as you enter the long descent, and finishes as a tight blue-black through trees down a gulley to the road.

Most of the run is very wide open. The preferred way of reaching the ridge is ascending this route by most parties.

All corn run at 1pm in early April.

First steepish section. You can see later in season (taken early April) that the rock bands could bottleneck this first section.
