This is a true mountain hiking single track. The upper section is along a narrow ridge with great valley views, and one
spot needing a human chain of 2 or 3 the get bikes down (or up if anyone ever tries it). Below the ridge some of the lower trail has been degraded by motorcycles. This section is very subject to blowdown. Check locally before attempting.
Egress can also be east via the MT Ida road North, which is deactivated and washed out but doable by bike or ATV, to the MT Ida FSR.

Access Info

Mt Ida FSR from east of the cemetary on Foothill Road. Very rough and washed out. A mega granny gear grunt.
