A ridgeline trail that crests Forgetmenot summit, Forgetmenot Mountain, and Forgetmenot Ridge. Access begins from the highest elevation point of the "Old Forgetmenot" trail, and involves a brief scree hike-a-bike up to the ridgetop. Along the ridge, there are a few places with large rocks that can't be ridden. You will hit 3 separate summit points along this ridge with outstanding views. The descent to the final ridge involves hike-a-bike down a small rock feature that is easily doable. Once on the final ridge, continue northward to meet with the cairn at the top of the northern access trail. The descent down to the elbow river is steep, loose, fast, and tight, with a variety of varying terrain. Dress for the elements as the weather up top can change in a moment.
