Be careful of your route finding on base property or you might end up with an expensive ticket.
Do not attempt if you are a beginner/intermediate rider or if you suck at navigation. NOTHING is marked on the RIDGE.
The near Ultimate Point to Point Shuttle route that covers all the major trail on the Ridge except for Pick&Shovel, Employees Only, UnderCover Buddy. These trails are not on trailforks since they tresspass across BASE property. You'll need to search Strava segments to find them.
If you do, Ride it like this: After the Chrome/Seeley climb, return to the Moto exit and ride it to Employees Only entrance. Descend EO till it intersects middle Pick. turn right and do a short hike. At the Rusty Truck turn left, and descend UnderCover Buddy to the intersection with the Connector and Pick &Shovel. follow the Connector traverse back to Morning Glory/Botanicals. Climb MG/Botanicals back to the top oif the ridge to descend FireBreak. Continue on with the ride (but feel free to trim the full shooters climb to MG/Botanicals descent).
Best descents on the Ridge are What, Firebreak, Chrome, Employees Only, and Bombers in no particular order. All very advanced riding.
