Named afterlongtime local Scott Curtis who owns a cabin at the base, Curly’s Trail isknown for its steep pitch and high-speed descent. After passing pt. 8200 on theEast Fork road (false summit), look for an unmarked junction on the left.
: Head north on Highway 75 to theBaker Creek Road (15.4 mi). Park at the Baker Creek parking area on the east side of the highway. Ride out Baker Creek Road approximately 3 miles and turn left onto the East Fork Baker Creek Road (#168). Go left (downhill) at the first fork in the road and right (uphill) at the second one. You'll climb through a couple of of switchbacks and onto a long traverse at which point you can see the high point of your route up to your left. After passing the high point, cruise slightly downhill around a corner and look for an unmarked trail on your left. This is the beginning of the Easley Gulch Trail (#148). Turn onto it and enjoy the meandering single track trail that eventually turns into a steep and high-speed descent.
