Pedal, push, and pucker your way through this epic ride! Anticipate highly engaging and exposed singletrack along the west side descent, before transitioning to flowy flower meadows beneath Ross Peak. Finish with a dusty climb back to the car and a dip in Fairy Lake!

The spring mentioned above is actually on the next section of Foothills Trail, 1.2 miles south of Ross Pass.

Amazing piece of trail. Alpine views. Rode on moto, which trail is more suited to. Best south to north. Gnarly sections with risk. Skills required.

There's an excellent piped spring at mile 6.8, about 25' to the right of the trail, you really can't miss it. No other water sources the entire length of this trail until Middle Cottonwood Creek.
