a great flowing singletrack ride. Takes you through pine forests and it the sage brush as well. The first 5 km are road climbing, and the last bit of the ride out also finishes on road. Nothing but awesome singletrack in the middle.

      Slightly dry in places, but for the area, in great condition. Difficult to find loops this good, even with the road and double track sections.

      Dry and loose on descents. Watch out for a marker pointing toward left after logging zone.

      Surprisingly not super loose sand. Able to still rip down most of it.

      Running Great! all clear through the recent logging zone, and all well marked now except it's still easy to accidentally drop left to Buck Lake...

       This is a ridiculously good ride. So much stunning singletrack, fast and flowy descents, and scenery that just keeps getting better and better. Highly recommended, but take lots of water on a hot day.

       Give this trail a few more weeks. Still quite a bit of snow in the shaded areas.

       Definitely a cross-country ride. Lots of ups and downs. Nothing technical, no big berms or any jumps or features. Beautiful wide open ridge ride at the top. About 1/3 of the trail is gravel road, so that part is kind of boring.
