Another excellent backcountry ride in this zone with over 4K descending. Lots of narrow single track, some rocky tech up top & near the bottom, and a fair amount of exposure along many parts of the trail. Recent brushing work on the trail has really opened things up and returned this ride to prominence. The trail gets loose and dusty in late summer but still pretty rides well. Watch out for creek crossing in early season as it can be a bit sketchy.

Access: Shady Pass Road from Lake Chelan or Entiat Valley

      reporter Small tree down across trail along NF 25 in the lower few miles, can get under it on Mtn bike or moto.

      reporter Excellent long descent but currently dry and loose. Fall rains will make this trail ideal .

      Overall pretty fun trail. Very sandy. Ideally you'd catch this after some rain or early/late season. I wouldn't pick it over pot peak / lake Creek...

       Dropped in from the top on 7/25. Lots of loose rocks and very dusty. 1.5-2 miles of trail is owned by alder brush, just before the switchback section. The switchbacks are gnar and need repair, but I got down all except one without getting off my bike (foot down). Epic trail, just needs some love and some rain. Awesome climb up shady pass from pot peak TH. Saw 4 bears

       Is the trail open / does anyone ascend NF 25 mile Ck trail and loop with Pot Peak trail?
