Amazingly fun, fast, rowdy motorized trail. Lots of natural berms, jumps, and rock gardens keep this descent interesting all the way to the bottom. This trail can be shuttled with a high clearance vehicle or can be ridden as part of a loop using the 963 trail and FR1902.
This is area sees lots of motorized traffic so be mindful of other users.

Access Info

Trail access is on FR1906 of the Little Naches rd 1900. Shuttling uses the 1906 up to the 1961 then continues onto the 871 spur. From here the is a connector to the 865 spur which will take you to Huckleberry Forest Camp. This connector requires a high clearance vehicle. From Huckleberry descend the 1902 to the trail head on 1902-864 spur or ride down the powerline 4x4 trail to the same trailhead.
To ride as a loop, park on the 1906 and ascend the 963 trail up to FR1902. Climb the 1902 to the 1902-864 and the South Fork 946 trail head. Descend the 946 back down to the car.

      reporter One tree down in the top 1/3. Trail is in great shape and is a super ripping descent right now.
