      Riding in Gifford Pinchot is primarily on trails that are moto-specific. Give thanks to them as they clear all of the downed trees in the Spring and post-storm. This makes for fast, rooty, and technical downhill sections that are countered with very challenging uphill sections. Ride with caution, a friend, and GPS as help is a long ways away. Expect a lot of hike-o-bike even for the most fit of riders. No cell service is available. Roads have little to no maintenance. Riding season starts in early June on the lower elevation trails, and could take up to late July for the higher elevations on Boundary trail.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
