The trail has three distinct portions. The top portion (hike-a-bike access) starts at 2553m in the alpine and descends to 1500m. The middle portion (pedal access) starts in subalpine at 1500m (4,960 ft.). The bottom portion (shuttle access) starts at 1270m (4,166 ft.) and descends to 348m. (1,141 ft.)

This trail is accessed through a number of FN reserve lands and various farm properties along Texas Creek Rd. Please drive respectfully, as these residents value there remote locations, and cyclists are starting to get a bad reputation out there, which may lead to trail restrictions. Slowing down, with a smile and a wave can go a long way to ease concerns.

Same advice regarding camping: please pack out what you take in, and consider dropping a few coins in town on gas, food and drinks, to provide a bit of spin-off benefit from your visit. There is already talk about gating the road at the bottom, so don't be the one that makes it happen.

Enjoy your ride.

      Running fine. Could do with a rake. If you are heading out for a day of shuttles maybe pack one and rake some of the little pebbles out of the ruts

       Surf break style localism. Couple a middle fingers thrown for no apparent reason. Likely locals not happy with people in the past smashing beers, leaving a mess and rallying past their land. Also, coupla (4) viscous white tipped guard dogs biting bumpers.

       Was there Friday before May long, got asked by the locals to leave and post a social media notice saying the area Is closed. Doug (owner of the white dogs) was very polite and understanding but let us know that the locals were not stoked on people visiting during due to Covid. He said that if it kept getting high traffic the locals would close it permanently.

      So don’t be like me and give the community the distance they require until this all blows over so we can all enjoy it later in the season
