The Bighorn Ridge is mostly a rutted out double track with some overgrown sections and a mix of loose rocks, chunky off camber roots and moto trenches. The climb is a tough slog from the parking lot to the 5 km sign as you reach the plateau. There's a bit of a view if you walk down the slope a bit. You can keep following the ridge all the way to the Greg River Cabin (55 km total ride from town to the Cabin and back) but most will turn around at the 5 km sign for a super fun, rowdy DH back to the parking lot.
