Great section of trail, occasionally gets rutted a bit from dirt bikes, but one of the better sections of the 157. This part of the trail is very difficult to climb up to the summit parking lot. It is always best to ride from the summit and drop down Pine Hollow, Mud Springs or Tibble Fork.

       This used to be a favorite ride for me when I lived close by about 6-10 years ago using the ridge and South Fork Little Deer Creek for a fun loop. Was really disappointed to find out how bad the motorcycles have ripped this section up. The ruts have gotten deeper but the baseball sized rock issue makes me not want to return.

       Again with this old guy above, the ridge trail is super fun! All of the loose sections have ridden lines in them and the root drops are real fun. Stop hating on Moto’s, they do even more trail work than bikers.

       Watch out for the MOOSE! We had to detour to the west and circle back around on the willow trail because they wouldn’t move.????

       This trail is absolutely brutal, but if your in good shape it is a lot of fun, would recommend going up and then going down little deer creek trail

       I'm going with a thumbs down on this. We took the little deer creek decent from the parking lot. Great trail! The ridge not so much. Lots of big sharp rocks, big roots, lose big rocks. Steep, rough, technical ascent. Not fun for me but if you are an animal you might dig it.
