A good trail in both directions, Nemesis is made up of tight switchbacks at the top, with increasing flow as you get towards the bottom of the trail. The trail goes through cedars and pines, and crosses a small creek a couple of times near the bottom.

Access Info

Nemesis comes out just above the 4-corners parking lot. To skip the uphill switchbacks, you can ride or shuttle up Moscow Mountain Road if the gate's open. A great downhill after climbing La Fortune's flight.
