There isn't much signage so TrailForks is a good idea when riding up at Sovereign Lake.

A suggested route for experienced riders at Sovereign Lake.

Double-track or gravel road climbing with awesome descending.

There is lots of different options for climbing such as Gold Mountain XC Ski, Popal Pass Snowmobile or Sovereign Lake Road.

You can mix up the order of descending as well or the trails you want to ride.

Dagmal is mostly fall-line.
Rock is the New Berm/ Threads has slabs and is flowy.
Hammered Cow has big steep rock slabs and some drops.

Overall a really great ride.

All good, the trail has some overgrown plants towards the bottom making the trail hard to see in places.
