Chunky and rough, Carbon Trail is beautiful, but challenging. Be prepared to hike your bike. ┬áThe particularly rocky and loose nature of this trail makes parts of the climb a hike-a-bike or the downhill not particularly great. It does however, make it a great alternative as an adventure ride loop by riding up Carbon, riding Para Me Y Para Te Trail and down Green Lake Trail. This ride is tough, but you’ll at least be given a sweet downhill with Green Lake Trail. As of July 2018, you can now loop this up with the Baxter’s Gulch Trail for a sick singletrack loop to/from town of CB!
