       This should NOT be listed as a viable mountain bike trail. We used it to drop off Osberg Ridge to Warm Springs Road. Saw no bike tracks. Not maintained. Had to route find several times. Over 50 downed trees (several are years old). Three non-rideable stream crossings.

       Rode this trail on a bikepacking trip and it is amazing! Not "Sun Valley Smooth" but a great backcountry trail

       Totally worthy. Upper meadow to placer as up or down from Osberg is sick! A few trees down on way up from warmsprings mostly in burn area. Toatally rideable and cleanable in both directions. I prefer as an up. 5 hr loop from board ranch if you come back on osberg and adams rib to adams gulch. Frickin the best epic. So nice. Get it.
