Techy climb that was pretty rocky. After riding the Sherman peak loop clockwise, this trail was a fun descent! Lots of different line choices :)...

Dry, but not too bad. No downed trees. Wild flowers are nice right now.

 Fun, techy trail. we have only ridden this clockwise and honestly I think it is probably the best direction. If you went ccw there would be some pretty steep, loose climbs. The section up from the road has some of the most fun rock tech. Once you get up top you have great views the entire way around. The out and back to Snow Peak Cabin is an option to extend the ride. Overall a fun trail if you like some techy riding.
