Highspeed Backcountry DH trail, extreme hike a bike to top, worth the effort.

A multi-use trail that ascends into Perk Canyon. Fast and flowy with some small creek gaps. Towards the top of the trail is some steeper rocky sections that are nice and techy; just have to hike-a-bike up there. Beware for hikers as there are usually hikers on this trail.

Access Info

Approach From Cedar Creek Recreation area using Fire Rd. from Geriatrics Trail. Bike then Hike to top of Perk Canyon and drop in.
