 This trail has some good sections, but overall is not very good on a Mtn bike. The motorcycles have chewed it up so bad that sections of it have very deep ruts that you can’t pedal in after the motorcycles chew it up and it rains, the soil washes out leaving nothing but baseball size (and bigger) loose cobbles. The map is not accurate either! Just after the Pots Peak fork heading north, it shows the trail going around the west side of a rocky peak in straight sections...it doesn’t do that at all! Zoom in and you can see that it descends on the east side in switchbacks through an rock avalanche field which is virtually unridable especially at the corners. Then it goes north a quarter mile north and starts climbing back up...again unridable and the corners are nasty. Not worth all the effort!!

 Most folks ride the west end of DB trail then drop down the long descent on Pot Peak Trail.
