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.

      Great shape. Not too sandy yet.

      There are approximately 10+ large trees across the trail. We were able to get over them, but it took some time.

      Pretty loose in some of the lower curves, but overall still a good ride.

      Just one tree on the trail near the bottom. Dusty.

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

       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.
