Starting from the intersection with the CT, get ready for a loose and steep descent. Once it drops down toward pole creek itself, the trail mellows out a bit with a couple more small loose steep sections. Eventually it drops back below treeline and get ready for some really stellar rooty descending with the occasionally mellow pedal section. The last descent before it dumps onto the road is really fun with lots of roots and a few small rock drops/gardens.

Access Info

Accessing from the CT if coming from spring creek pass is ideal (providing you left a vehicle to shuttle with at the road where pole creek ends), although driving out and doing this as an out and back could be pretty fun, too.
