Popular hike trail to backpack and hunt up past the intersection with the Tie Trail #402. This trail starts off really wide and flat until it reaches a stream (North Fork West Fork Gallating River), then the trail narrows to a nice single track. It gets a bit difficult in spots as it gets closer to the intersection, but mostly easy and a fun rip down.
