Description
The upper portion of this trail is very steep, and very loose. You'll definitely be off the back of your saddle on this one! Starting out it's not too bad, but after the first 200-300 yards, it'll surprise you first with a couple of switchbacks and then with the steep, loose descent.

Once you're at the bottom of the ridge, you'll have some nice, tight singletrack to ride with a couple creek crossings thrown in to round out the trail.
