Iron Mountain: Yellow Trail Map

Yellow Trail (YT) is a loop extension of Green Trail (GT). YT is a lot like GT, in that it has a long, extended, although gentle, climb; but the long, flowy descent is well worth the effort.

Description

You have the option to bypass YT and just continue the GT loop back to the trailhead, however, you will miss a nice ride.

To ride YT follow the paved road across the bridge, which has a great view of the large earthen dam holding back DeGray Lake’s water, and keep an eye out for the entrance on the left to the single track. It is only about 100 yards on pavement.

When you return back to the pavement return to where you exited GT and resume the loop to the left.

Difficulty

Moderate

Mostly stable trail tread with some variability, with unavoidable obstacles 8in/20cm tall or less. Other obstacles such as rock gullies and steep sections may exist. Ideal for lower intermediate riders.
