A classic Kettle Fest ride, the Jungle Hill descent is the foundation of this route. The route starts from the Jungle Hill campground, ascends to Sherman Pass via Sherman Tie, and then heads North on the Kettle Crest trail. An optional loop around Columbia Mountain to the viewpoint can be taken, or not, as desired. The Kettle Crest trail eventually comes to the Jungle Hill intersection. Here, one can descend immediately back to camp, or continue along the Kettle Crest for another mile or so of alpine meadows and view to the Wapaloosie intersection, then return to Jungle Hill for an excellent descent to camp.

Options:
- check you dignity and start from Sherman Pass instead of camp (cuts a few miles and a few K of climbing)
- skip one or more of the optional out and backs (Columbia Mountain loop and KC to Wapaloosie intersection)
