Part of the Grandview Ridge Trails system.

Sidewinder Trail is a moderate 3.3-mile trail that is open to all non-motorized use. Sidewinder connects the top of Yellow Brick Road to Carbon Junction and is a popular bike ride extension for the Grandview Ridge and Horse Gulch trail systems.

The trail system next to the Horse Gulch/Telegraph network (and connecting to it) is called the Grandview Ridge Trails and includes several very fun local trails. The trails are designed as ‘swoopy,’ intermediate style multi-use and multi-direction trails for mountain biking, hiking, trail running.
