This trail is tough. If you ride from Green River Cove trail north towards the parking area at Big Hungry Road, you face an uphill battle all the way. The trail starts with a hike-a-bike section up a steep slope of washed-out water bars, which alone is difficult to hike up.

Once above that section, there are a few rocky sections to climb over as well. The trail then levels off a bit until you reach the intersection with Rock Hop trail. Once past this point, the trail continues up severely washed out in some places with large water bar drops and loose rocks. You almost need to be a trials rider to hop up the top section of trail to the parking area at the top.

       The TF trail description here is wrong - not a bad up vs Bear Branch, which easily is the best DH trail in the GR area. The top is easy up or down. Not sure who wrote it, but its way off. A basic blue minus the gullied base

       You can scroll to the bottom right of the page if in a web browser & click the EDIT feature to change that. Trails are editable for improvement and community input.
