Most people's go-to easy access ride up into the Ridgemont area. Beautiful easy trail. Reworked with machines in Spring 2016. Just beware Stravassoles trying to break the sound barrier coming down it. Speaking of a*sholes, the FTA built a beautiful little area at the top on the left with an area to sit and enjoy the forest with a picnic table donated by a local company. Within 2 months some jerk came and took it away. Guess he's sitting on it in his backyard. Fire bad thoughts at that person as you ride by and karma will find them...

Access Info

Up Cemetery Bypass and keep going straight and you will see the signs at a junction.
