2000 vert of non-stop, fast descending. Pretty smooth the entire way, with only a few small roots. A few switchbacks up top open up to some fast parts through the woods at the bottom. Keep rolling into Spring Gulch for one of the longest non-stop descents you'll find anywhere.

Watch out for hikers! Especially on the weekends. Later in the season this trail is also used by hunters heading out to the back country,

Access Info

While descending down Spring Gulch, take the first sharp left and climb. Climb to the Wilderness boundary then either turn around, or leave your bike and hike to the peak.
