The Mule Connector Trail runs north/south between the trailheads of Mule Ear and Mule Shoe trails. It can be used to make a figure 8 between the trails, or it can be used if you only want to ride one or the other as a return trail.
The trail is very high quality without a lot of elevation gain or tight switchbacks. It is mostly downhill when ridden from North to South and makes for a very fun loop return from either Mule Ear or Mule Shoe.
Overall the trail is very smooth and easy. Consider using this trail as part of a great trail combo in North Fork Park.
Max elevation: 6014 ft
