Things may have changed since the 2013 floods, but there is some great riding up high on the ridge

Access Info

The 2013 floods might have blown out the creek more than the 1995 floods, but the rest of the trail should be unaffected.

       Do not go right and follow the creek bed that this trail shows. The new trail looks well traveled and follows a cutline that actually makes a the trail shorter.
