Fast and fun with lots of tech on a mountain bike. For hikers this is the lower part of Middle Fork that starts the big trek up to many trail loops and back packing options in the Wind River Range.

      Very fun trail. I'd call it more of a black diamond vs double black. The upper 2/3 of the trail is classic "unimproved" trail with some great views. Very little exposure or crazy rock features. Just some consistent tech to give you a test. The bottom 1/3 (below the falls) is a blast. Super fast, steep, chunky. A ton of hikers though on that section. Probably best to hit it early in the morning before the trail gets clogged with hikers.
