TTFs on TrailDrop
A steep and fun trail averaging 20% (don't try climbing it). It's more fun once you know it. There is a couple creek crossings that break the flow unless you can keep your momentum. The 4' root drop is fun but you can't see the landing so stop and make sure no hikers are going up the trail. Then hit it!
The best way to loop it is starting from Chikamin creek TH and riding up Rock creek. After you descend down Basalt pass, either go 2 miles up the road to Lower Chikamin Tie or a quarter mile down to a hidden connector trail that puts you on Minnow Ridge (or Chikamin Creek) and eventually back to the car.
