This trail used to drop you down the ridge into a power slide or hike-a-bike, but recent (Summer 2015) improvements by the USFS, have re-routed the trail around the ridge, making the first part of the trail a fun and loose descent. The trail dips around providing some fun jumps, while keeping water from running down the trail. A short rock field will test your skills with a few tight switch backs. After this the trail goes downhill fast, loose and with large edges rutted out from motos. Mostly a powerslide and you lose a lot of altitude. The rocky sections get really tough as well.

Fantastic dirt bike single track. Some great climbing, technical sections and also some good faster paced smooth sections.

This trail is brutal. I rode this clockwise starting and ending at Mill Springs. The East side starts out easy enough. Then turns into rough rock...

 Trail is brutal. Rode clockwise. Will avoid in the future.
