OHV trail, so watch for motos.

Makes a good early season loop when combined with Chikamin Creek, best done clockwise. Consider skipping lower Minnow Ridge and instead climbing the road to join upper Minnow Ridge when it briefly hits the road.

      A couple trees across the trail. Sandy but otherwise clear.

      Dozens of trees across trail. All can be hiked around, but it's a slog.

       Don't take this for a quick downhill trail. The thing obnoxiously rolls like crazy (it's a moto trail), you feel like you're climbing half the time. I would describe it as almost fun; couple rad corners -> steep climb -> couple rad corners -> steep climb....etc.
