Mountain biking can be dangerous - please know your skill level and be appropriately prepared with PPE before starting any trail.

This trail is also open to dirtbikes and other small OHVs - use caution, especially around blind corners.

This short stretch of the trail takes you from the junction of the Short Shot Connector trail past the Nut-N-2-It junction up to the intersection with the Second Thoughts trail.

This segment starts at the junction between the Short Short and Twist-N-Shout trail. The trail follows a drainage to the northeast for a short distance before bending left and crossing a pinyon-juniper woodland. Rounding the head of a small drainage, the trail descends while a small meadow nestled in the drainage provides an open view to the east. The scar of an old road can be seen crossing the flats as well and occasionally you'll catch glimpses of the Nut-N-2-It trail on the far side of the clearing.
The trail levels out as you approach the northern end of the meadow and just 0.06 miles before you reach the junction with the Second Thoughts trail, you'll encounter a signed junction with the Nut-N-2-It trail coming in from the right. Around one more slight bend in the trail as it continues through the pinyon-juniper you'll come to the end of this segment at the signed junction with Second Thoughts. Either turn left and descend on Second Thoughts to loop back towards the trailhead or northern Little Park trails, or continue straight on Twist-N-Shout to head towards the 6-mile-long Butterknife Trail or the shorter Rocky Stumble/Third Flats segments to loop back to the trailhead.

Water Sources
None, bring all you need.


This trail is rated Blue (Intermediate) for mountain bikers. This trail is also open to motorized traffic, specifically dirtbikes and other small OHVs less than 42" across.
