This trail is not for the faint of heart. It's recommended that you make your way to the upper trailhead somehow. The most common way would be to ride up the Two Bear Road to Skalkaho-Rye Rd. The road to the trailhead is not marked and neither is the trail.

Start with a quick downhill to a pleasant meadow, then start climbing, making sure not to miss where the trail heads to the top of Bald Top. At the junction it looks like the trail goes left. Don't be fooled turn right. Climb and push your bike to the top. At this point you'll be in a burn area, and the trail becomes sketchy towards to top. The trail down is a little below the summit towards the southwest. Head down, hold on, and good luck.
