High Point

This ride is for those not in it for the pure descending. It is a technical climber's wet dream.
You summit the top of Wiltse via the switchbacking GSpot. Once submitted, you follow the blue rocks down the start of Egg Rock. At this point, you should be cautioned of the copious levels of side exposure as cliffs abound.
Keep a steady eye out for the trail markers, at times you are just on slab rock and watching for the next blue rock.
You will see the aforementioned Egg Rock but the Climax turn off is JUST before this. It heads down, making sometimes flowy maneuvers along cliff edges, to the gas line below. Climb a bit more and take the blue rock left turn as you start climbing the 2-track. Now it is a climb descend back to the other side.
Eventually you will be cruising down a babyhead 2-track, there will be a left hand up turn that you need to keep speed and power for. It is a long grunt up along a climbing wall.

When the single track runs out, its a gentle 2-track climb back to the other side of the valley and into the Wiltse land again. You'll ride through an end of a street and through a gate/fence. Keep on this until you spot a legitimate single track climb. This will take you up to the top of Duodenum where you can flow your way back to Evergreen Dr. Enjoy the only proper descent you've gotten to do ;_)

Great trail, excellent condition, but had to slow and/or stop several times to get my bearings, find markers, get through overgrowth, etc. It just keep on going, don't it?

The trail ends in a huge pit created by the new roads. To get out take the Wiltse 2-track* to the end of Evergreen Drive instead of continuing on the last leg of the trail.
