Lower caribou ridge trail starts at the junction of caribou ridge trail, and trail 258(the connector). While the first 3/4 of this trail may not seem like a double black diamond trail, the lower 1/4 is a VERY technical group of switchbacks, that include drops, rocks, off camber trail, roots and ALOT of exposure. Please use caution when riding this trail.

There are a few trees down, but nothing that will catch you off guard. Otherwise it is in good shape.

 Rode this for the first time today. The upper part is a lot like 257 et al in this area...fun, not too steep to techy singletrack. The lower part is pretty exposed and has some challenging rock and root features. It reminds me a little bit of the Portal Trail in Moab. Fun, but you better be ok with trail carved into a steep hillside!
