This is a long shuttle route...should be worth it for all the bombing dawn the mountains you will get. All day ride in the forest bring your A game as there are no good bail outs after Pilot Rock. So bring plenty of water, food and humor.

 You guys forgot to mention the first .25mi is illegal for mountain bikes. I was discussing this route at the local bike shop with a National Park Service ranger asking me about a couple of the trails. He said 'you mean it's a hike a bike?' I said, 'no it's hiking only, black trail on the map, illegal for bikes.' He seemed dumbfounded that a website/app like this would list a route including a no-bikes start like this one. Maybe take it down? Or change the start point on the map so it's not so blatant? Just a thought
