Ribbon Creek Trail was partially destroyed by flooding in 2013. It was rebuilt with new bridges and viewpoints, tracking close to Ribbon Creek all the way to where it meets the Ribbon Lake Trail. The trail consists of wide singletrack and doubletrack, without much in the way of technical features. Sightlines are good, but this trail can get a LOT of hikers - please moderate your speed on the downhill back to the parking lot.
