This mountain bike ride is a great step up for intermediate riders and consists of a mellow climb up Cove Creek trail with a few stream crossings, then a traverse across to Daniel Ridge trail on an old jeep road that has grown into singletrack. The descent down Daniel Ridge follows the creek, and there is a good swimming hole at the end.
