Description: To reach High Grade Trail, return to the paved road and head toward the Red Cliffs Campground. Cross Quail Creek, but don’t follow the road as it turns sharply to the right. Instead, go straight to the stepover, which is the start of the High Grade Trail. This is the preferred route for mountain bikers to access Prospector Trail instead of using Adams Trail, which equestrians use. Follow the short singletrack until it intersects Prospector Trail.
