      Drove to sheep’s bridge road- inch or so on snow, and turned around assuming there would be worse conditions on the mesa.

       I would recommend dividing this trail into two sections. When ridden from the trailhead, take a right and go out via Hidden Canyon. The next section is best ridden from the overlook.

       Excellent trail. Rode out this direction and back on the North rim in the dark with lights. Didn't have time for hidden canyon. Frown

       Really fun trail. As a beginner mountain biker, I would rate this as Blue difficulty. The trail is dry and clean. No snow.

       Challenging ride up and ends with great views. Would be more fun riding down than the boring North Rim.

       I found this pretty challenging riding up - would reverse it and ride down next time.
