“One of the best cross-country descents on singletrack in town!”

Many folks call the Blue Ribbon trail pure cross-country, singletrack bliss. There are a few climbs thrown in to keep you working, not to mention plenty of terrain variety from big boulders and small drops to muddy foot bridges and tight switchbacks.

It's approximately 3.7 miles of bomber singletrack all the way down the ridge-line to where the trail spits you out onto a logging road. From there, turn left around the big green gate and your back on pavement.
