The Southern Flow route is a nice 2-3 hour loop between the West Bragg Creek trailhead and Hwy 66. Most people do it counter-clockwise. If you do it the other way 'round, Strange Brew is more fun to descend than Ranger Summit.

Park at West Bragg or Allen Bill for easiest access.

Very nice and good to go. I don't think there's any patches of wetness even after so much rain at the beginning of July.

A couple trees to duck under as you are riding this one. Could be cut out, however they are not impeding the trail.
