Great lunch ride. Red Sandstone Rd can get a bit busy with cars heading to Piney Lake, especially on the weekends in July and August. Son of Middle Creek starts with some up and downs through some awesome terrain and aspens. After your 3rd tougher up, get ready to head down! Head left at the North Trail intersection and its all steep, tight, fast, and fun flowy downhill...let'er rip! Keep your head up for hikers coming up the trail.
