North Ridge trail consist of bermed corners, rock rolls, rock drops that vary between 1 foot to 4 feet, skinny sections of trail with rock gardens, tables and some small doubles. There is a jump section that offers bigger double jumps, but all can be rolled. It ends with a lava rock garden that is ridable but tough. Some of the rock drops are mandatory, but can be hiked.

       This is one of my favorite Southern Oregon trails. Absolutely worth going the extra miles to access it.
