The last section will provide a great view of the Sawtooth Mountains just before ending at the trailhead and Pit Toilet.
At the start of this trail, you've got about 400' of climbing to get through. The climb is all singletrack, and not difficult at all. The interesting scenery will keep you occupied, although you might find yourself wondering how beautiful and cool this ride would have been in the deep forest before the fire.
Eventually you'll reach the obvious high point, then you'll round a corner and down you go! It's hard not to grin on this one - the trail surface is tacky with tree cover and shade - it's one of the best descents around. It's mostly smooth, and it flows so well you'll challenge yourself not to touch the brakes except in a few tighter corners.
But be careful - while very few people ride up this trail, it's been known to happen and it's NOT a downhill only trail, despite the ridiculous flow. So keep your eyes open and be careful.
Towards the bottom you'll emerge from the trees into more grassy surroundings, and you've got one more short but sharp climb before descending the rest of the way to your car.
