The beginning of the trail's downhill stretch is shaded by thick aspen—watch your step over roots crossing the trail. After the small bridge across Cornet Creek, there's a 5-minute uphill before the trail widens and begins heading downhill to town. The last several switchbacks toward town are loose and rocky: be careful and aware of bikes and other users who also frequent this loop.
