Coalton Trail

Trail Meter: 

When you get to the Coalton Trail, you couldn't be blamed for thinking it looks a lot like a gravel road. While it lacks in features or much fun, it's a key connector in the Dirty Bismark loop, and is also a great way for those in the Superior/Louisville areas to get of road and into the rest of the Marshall Mesa trail system.

Wide, flat, and gravel is the rule here. The exception is the one main climb, which is often a bit rutted and provides the only potential challenge.
