A fun little trail that connects Galena Creek Park with Upper Whites Creek. There are three main easy/moderate climbs over ridges followed by short, but fun downhill sections. The trail is mainly used by hikers, but you can usually see a couple turns ahead. The trail is mostly under the trees with a few exceptions. Trail is mostly smooth hiking trail with a few rocky sections mixed in.

       It’s a hike not a ride to white creek with a few descent spots to ride towards the end. Pretty awful

       A few drawn out climbs that get moderately technical in places, but worth it for the views and fun downhills.
