Be sure you have maps, directions, and proper supplies before attempting this ride.

This trail can be made into a loop using gravel roads to make your way back. The Middle Fork itself is approximately 25 singletrack miles followed by an additional 13 miles of gravel road bringing the total ride length to 38 miles. It is advised that you take additional provisions and be sure to bring a copy of this map and directions. There are sections of long, steep grinders on the gravel back to the start. Also note that the last junction brings you back to the Middle Fork. Turn right onto the singletrack and ride about 3 miles back to the trailhead.
