       Not sure if anyone else does, but I prefer riding up via Pork Chop, and then down this back to the Adams Gulch trailhead. Not built as a flow trial... but had solid flow with just enough roots and rocks to keep you honest.

       I totally agree with other commenter that it’s better to ride up Pork then down this trail. Going up it there was a lot of rocks and roots to get over and it’s much easier (and probably fun) doing it on the down instead from the other direction. Maybe I am just not good enough but there were a few hike a bike situations.
