Ewok is by far the preferred trail to return to the main Rattlesnake trail head. It's a super fun, fast, and flowy trail when descending, but WATCH OUT there are a lot of other trail users due to its close proximity to the trail head. It is courtesy to take the road if you are climbing from the parking lot, although this trail is legally bi-directional.

 Fun area to ride. I am an out of towner that rode this system a few times recently. I noted a couple things that were not clear. 1: GPS shows this trail on the SW side of the paved road. But I found no trail on that side. I did ride a trail that seems like it could be Ewok on the NE side of the paved road. If I have not ridden the wrong trail in error then perhaps the tracks should be updated. I can post mine if needed. 2: The description indicates a multi-use trail that is fun to ride down with caution for other users yet for some reason trailforks shows directional arrows for this trail suggesting it is an uphill only. That should be addressed probably by removing the directional arrows on this and all other multi use trails.

 Great green trail to ride up. We took this to Fenceline and rode that up!

 Fun trail to rip down. It has some banked corners and wall rides and if you are going fast enough you can catch a little air. I wish there were more trails like this.
