Downhill trail from top of desert mountain. Drive your self up to the top of Desert Mountain trail starts off the top of the peak headed away from Glacier Park. You'll cross the road a few times but it's always pretty easy to find the trail again. the second road crossing is a 180 on itself so head down the road just a little and look to the right to find the trail again. cruise on down to the bottom of the road. sections of smooth flowing trail and tech rock riding too.

Access Info

Park your shuttle rig on the bottom where the S Fork RD hit NF-590D rd. follow 590D take a right on desert mountain rd head up to the peak park on top

 The only thing this trail has going for it is its length. It is a seemingly never ending continuous descent. However, it doesn't have many interesting features after the top half mile or so. It's just a mellow, narrow trail through heavy vegetation.
