Good single track with lots of rocks and roots (some double track ~1mile near the south end). Moderate amounts of climbing, some exposure. Great views of the north side of Mt Hood, and the Hood river valley. 12.1 miles each way from Baldy (power lines) on the north to Forest road 44 on the south. Gps shows a net gain of 1300' from north to south with a maximum grade of 15%. Some ride the road on the up track, but not necessary and honestly very boring, and dusty.

 Fun trail on it's own. Rode this from power lines to FR 44 as part of a loop with dog river. You can park at the ranger station, but it takes 10 miles of uphill road riding to get to TH. Need to be very fit for that whole ride (33 miles). Would recommend just riding the trail on its own as out and back or shuttle it.
