A mix of buffed trail and rocky sections becoming more primitive along the upper half of the trail. Can be ridden either direction. Expect some hike-a-bike either direction especially near the Ida/Wy boarder and again above the south fork confluence. The ford below Siddoway Creek can be an issue in the springtime.

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