“One of the most remote trails in the forest, but so worth the effort!”

Little Mountain Trail would be over run with people if it was just near somewhere else, or it was easier to link into other rides. As it is though, it's worth the effort it takes to get to it.

I don't know of anyone that has ridden this trail from East to West, although in theory you could. The issue is that the multiple lines through the rocks definitely ride better in this direction, whether they were manipulated or not. If you have the technical skills, this trail has multiple features that are worth sessioning until you can get them dialed. The last one in a long line is referred to as "the Slot" as you have you descend through a 30 inch gap in two shoulder high boulders.

The only intersection is a bit tricky, as Little Mountain actually veers right slightly but continues on the ridge. Al; maps show this intersection as being a right angle 4 way intersection, but that's not how it looks in real life, so be careful.
