Long twisty descent over by Woods Gulch. Starts out very smooth and twisty (with an interesting rock feature.) Many people take the forest road half way down, but the sons(s) of sidewider make a nice addition. After the forest road the trail gets rougher and more burly as it doesn't get as much traffic. Beautiful during the early summer when the flowers are changing.

Access Info

From the main woods ridgeline go up.

Ran the upper section and there were just a couple small puddles. Looks great after the thinning done last year.
