INTERMEDIATE MTN: Swamp Wells trail out/back
May 17 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
It’s early in the season so let’s take it easy and do only one of the major climbs on the Swamp wells Trail. Starting at Bessie Butte TH off China Hat road, we’ll catch Swamp Wells trail and gradually climb 4 miles until we start to ascend the steep mile up Kesley Butte. After this 5.5 miles total climb to the summit ,we’ll ride an additional 2 miles to a sunny lunch/snack spot. We retrace the trail (mostly)back down to our cars for a total of 15 miles.
ROLLING OUT AT 9:30 AM. Meet at Bessie Butte TH 9:15.
This is a challenging climb of approx 1300′, but it should be hero dirt out there now! The lunch spot is in a section of dense beautiful trees not recently forested! And the view at the top of Kelsy is spectatular !!
