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.

The trail is mostly cleared except for just before the summit approaching from the south. Huge amount of trees down and the trail can’t be located. I bailed out to the Boundary horse trail and took that to the next junction.

The middle half is unrideable due to downed trees. You can’t even find the trail. The bottom 25% is good with lots of small trees that are easy to roll over.
