This is an very, very scenic route that connects northern ascent of Silver Star mountain, which 100% ridable, with Bluff mountain trail and Summit Springs descent using available two track roads. You follow an exposed ridge for 60% of the ride so the views are truly stunning. Doable on hard tail, but terrain is very rocky, so full susp recommended.

      All logs and large lose boulders have been cleared from trail. It's in good shape, slightly overgrown in a few spots but nothing too bad.
