In the winter this trail can be fast and flowy. Ideal for fat biking, and after the snow has been packed down well, plus and normal mountain bikes can ride it too. This trail's true personality shows after the snow is gone. It is a technical, rocky trail with many interesting features such as the ladder bridges for which it is named, rock overs, and skinnies.

Disclaimer

      Some very soft spots through the water course areas. Otherwise the tread is firm. Bridges have some stiles missing and are slippery today. Ride...

       Hilton Falls, new signage is going up this spring, but you should be able to see the line between the two properties as red paint on trees or even no trespassing (Seasons pass required)
