A steady climb through beautiful forest up to Windy Gap. The trail climbs almost 4000 feet in just over 8 miles. Riders who climb this trail will be rewarded with beautiful views and a seemingly 'endless' downhill on the return trip. This trail mixes steep climbs with flatter sections on the way up. Several short descents break up the climb on the way to Windy Gap. From Windy Gap, the trail continues further into the wild, but changes its' name to the Boundary Trail.

Access Info

Trail is accessed via the trailhead on Rock Creek Road outside of Williams Oregon. Take Highway 238 to Water Gap Road to East Fork Road to Rock Creek Road. Park next to the rail fence.
