We’ll maintained the poison oak was cut back plenty of room. A local guided us here or else I wouldn’t have gone this route reading the description. Such I beautiful ride. I’d recommend taking uphill trail, hazard peak then we dipped to east boundary. I’d ride again! There is a campground- RESERVE a spot! Would be a great spot to camp and stop3

Wouldn't recommend climbing it unless your legs are fresh. I walked most of the first half as the switchbacks are steep. Would be a terrific descent and plenty challenging!

Arguably the best trail in this whole system. I'd recommend this for anyone who is new to MTBing or wants to progress. It's got a good climb, but mellow enough that you won't have to walk most sections, and a fun and challenging singletrack descent regardless of skill level. Ride this trail up and down if you're here and get a chance!

Good conditions on the descent but required a lot of attention. It was the most technical of the trails I rode today including Hazard, Manzanita, and Oats Peak. Uphill would be challenging.

Tech steep climb but a blast on the Ripley. Bring plenty of water as it’s hotter farther back in the mountains.
