This trail is a mix of wider single track and 4 wheeler width double track. The climbs are short and mostly mellow sections of dirt road. The descents are fast, mostly smooth, with multiple line choices in most areas due to the twin single tracks. While the double track might not sound exciting, this trail has a ton of flow, natural jumps here and there, and really lets you open it up. Totally worth the effort to access it.

Access Info

Most sensible access at this point would be from Beef Camp (FS 102),

       The upper section is dry and rideable. However, there are lots of downed trees to contend with that make the upper third not so enjoyable. The lower 2/3 are a blast! Mostly good riding but loose in spots, but great sustained downhills.
