The Taylor Ridge Trail #74 is a great bike trip for experienced mountain bikers. This trail climbs from the valley to ridges where on a clear day one can see Alligator Ridge, Thompson Ridge and several mountains including Copper, Midnight, Twin Sisters, and Stick Pin. You can leave a car at the lower end of the trail, drive to the top trailhead, climb 1000 ft to the highest point, then it is downhill for 10 miles to the 090 Rd. Panoramic views at the top and forest scenery going down.
