Going this direction, Ant Hill is a slight downhill, with several tricky rock gardens going up and down. Ride through the dense huckleberries on this ridge top that takes you to the Abigail Trail.

Access Info

From Big Flat parking lot, head onto the Ram Hill doubletrack. This will eventually take you to the powerlines. Go right along the powerlines, and the entrance will be on your left about 50 yards down.

      Trail is in good shape. One tree is leaning over trail near the beginning (off the powerline) but you can ride under it with a little care.
