One of the most enjoyable green circle trails I've ridden. While you won't get technical, rocks or big jumps, you will get a long, flowy fast trail. A good climb and an enjoyable decent. Multi-use trail so be courteous to other trail users. Remember to yield to uphill riders. In the Spring the creek flows so you will probably get wet.

      After the rains we got the corners are feeling amazing. Get out there and rip it before the heatwave!

       4/15/18- Excellent ride, rocky sections near bottom, trail very dry. Ran into 8 people going down, of that were two parents and their small child. at least 5 coming up. Started 1:30-2 pm ish.
      Highly recommend helmet. Rode steel hard-tail/solid fork, 40x700c.

       FYI, the bottom section of this trail is not an beginner level trail with how many rocks there are in the stream bed. Cut off onto the AZT (Shultz Creek) for a much better time.

       Use Dogfood, FSR 6275, then AZT as a “climb trail” and then down Schultz...it’s a great loop. Schultz is a two way trail but it’s much better down than up...I don’t know why people climb it...it should be downhill only (for bikes) and there would be a lot less grumbling.

       Every time you shuttle Schultz, God kills a kitten. Think of the kittens. Don't shuttle Schultz! There are much better things to shuttle in the area!
