This route is as fun as it gets. The most part, is downhill, although there are some climbs such as the climbs of Enchanted Forest, the road that takes you to Dakota Ridge and Dakota Ridge's initial climb. It is a perfect combination between wet dirt in the woods and dry dirt in a ridge with a little bit of tech in both trails. The perfect day to do this, is a cloudy day.
