I took the road up from the lower trailhead to three o’clock ridge to Lower Dungeness trail, continued south to upper Dungeness trailhead then took the road back up to three o’clock ridge and rode the trail back down to the lower trailhead. Very fun, only two big logs to climb over. Fun trail, more turns than gold creek, some hairy exposure. Beautiful forest. Trail is narrow but in good shape.

A few minutes with a chain saw could make this trail fast and flowy again. Come on guys! Starting from the bottom would be best.

The north end of the trail has two small trees down. Easy to get over the first and under the second. Trail is a bit unstable in places. In one spot it gave way and I slid down the bank a ways. Last third of north end is sloppy in places. Gorgeous ride. Next time I wont do it solo.
