Rocky and primitive, especially along the North Fork. Strait shot through the heart of the Palisades! Can be ridden either direction but top down is best; expect some hike-a-bike either direction. The ford below Siddoway Creek can be an issue at higher water levels.

The North Fork can have a lot of blow-down timber and the trail is usually very faint at the top end.
