High Point

In about 10 miles this ride descends 4700' on various types of singletrack, from buff to primitive and steep. There is some crossing country and climbing to connect Powderhouse Gulch Trail w/ Perreau Creek via either Horn Hunter or Horse Mountain Trails. Always great views to be had along the XC portion. This ride takes from 2 - 4 hours depending on your group.

There are two shuttle options. Leaving a rig at Shoup Bridge Rec. Site is convenient and there is river access and shade, this adds a mile of pavement to the descent. Or park at the junction of Perreau Creek Road and Williams Creek Road.

The dropoff is on the Ridge Road about 3/4 mile south of Williams Creek Summit.
