Massive fun! Huge exposure early during the descent, only after climbing a very technical 1,400 feet. From the top, you descend for 11 miles and down 4,000 vertical feet. Once you under the evergreen canopy, its dry loam, chutes and roots galore.

 I was surprised to read the wilderness area comment, which lead to a bit of searching. The ridge at the top of the trail appears to border the North Fork John Day Wilderness, but the trail heads east in National Forest. Should be fine.

Here is a link that should help clarify:
