Description

This trail meanders across a big open meadow to the foothills and drainages of a high ridge. There are lots of short rollers to keep things interesting. It intersects the Sawmill Trail at .6 mi, and has a viewpoint spur trail on the right at 3 mi. with a challenging climb and spectacular distant views to the north and west.

A must visit. You could spend several days here and ride different singletrack each time. With more trails being built regularly. Nice designated camping areas and clean restrooms. Help support the cause, only 5 dollars a day

Trailhead map, confusing because as you stand there it is upside-down to the direction you are facing.
