In about 10 miles this ride descends 4700' on various types of singletrack, from buff to primitive and steep. There is some crossing country and climbing to connect Powderhouse Gulch Trail w/ Perreau Creek via either Horn Hunter or Horse Mountain Trails. Always great views to be had along the XC portion. This ride takes from 2 - 4 hours depending on your group.
There are two shuttle options. Leaving a rig at Shoup Bridge Rec. Site is convenient and there is river access and shade, this adds a mile of pavement to the descent. Or park at the junction of Perreau Creek Road and Williams Creek Road.
The dropoff is on the Ridge Road about 3/4 mile south of Williams Creek Summit.
