An old school technical test piece that drops steeply from the intersection with the Sypes Canyon Trail. Expect steep, loose and technical riding with exposure (one 90 deg turn to be specific) off the top becoming more manageable the lower you get. After crossing the drainage at the bottom of the initial descent, a short climb will bring you to a long traverse across the foothills of the west side of the Bridgers. The closer you get to the parking lot, the busier it will get. Ride respectfully. This trail is subject to the Trail time share plan which prohibits mountain biking on Saturdays from June 16- Sept 5.

Disclaimer

No Mtn Biking on Saturdays; Trail Time Share between June 16 and Sept 5.

      Still full of slick mud and puddles above the split. Needs another day or two after all the rain.

       Would not recommend this as a route from M Rock in season. You will have to walk your bike down the lower section due to the crowds of people hiking the trail. The upper section is much less crowded and secluded.
