Take in the view and then lose a ton of elevation in a hurry. Fast and then continually steeper but pretty smooth. Great ride in early June when the ridge-line meadow is filled with wildflowers.

Access Info

Easiest to get there from Deer Creek side taking the road all the way up. Riding up would be a ton of hike a bike.
