Dry and dusty trail, but super fun. Love the ridge trail. Rode to the connector trail from Chase overlook and back.

 Do not recommend trying to follow this trail all the way to the end.

The last quarter of this is so overgrown that you can't see the trail at all.

Highly recommend sticking with www.trailforks.com/trails/ftbt-new-trail

 9/15/2018 The whole trail is open and maintained.You need GOOD brakes! Approx. 17.5 miles from the top of Blacktail MT. to the parking area @ Herron Park.It's mostly somewhat technical single track with some double track thrown in.1 nice shelter about half way down.Loads of view points.
