PLEASE READ DESCRIPTION BEFORE RIDING

This route is intended for advanced adaptive riders only. The black section of Baby Steps Loop jeep road, after the intersection with Klondike Bluffs Road, going down the back side, requires major rock crawling and problem solving. You MUST have clearance and suspension. Skid plate highly recommended. It's extremely chunky and a hike-a-bike for two-wheeled riders. This is not intended for two-wheeled riders. The purpose of this route is to create a route for advanced adaptive riders with extremely capable equipment to perform solo. If you are new or have less capable equipment, this route will require assistance. aMTB3 rating states that the average rider will need support. It's definitely not the best this area has to offer since it's mostly jeep road but it's a loop with Baby Steps, which is a super fun ledgy downhill. If you are planning to ride this route, please contact The UNPavement at the link below.
