      This is a beautiful ride that traverses pasture land above the river and climbs over Black Butte, easily the tallest butte for miles. The trail is tight singletrack with occasional rock technical sections, and one muddy water crossing. It circles the property following the elevation lines and switchbacks nicely up and back down the butte providing very nice views of the surrounding area. The main loop mapped here is about 5 mile. There is another 3 mile loop across the cattle guard in the southwest. When I last rode it this loop was hard to distinguish and easily lost. The main loop however gets plenty of use and is easy to find. This trail is entirely on private property so please take care of it and consider making donations at the trail head toward its upkeep. The trails also cross active pasture land so treat the cattle and horses with respect. Use of the trail is a privilege, not a right. Enjoy.
