Description

The trail starts from the south side of the Trail 62 / Ranch Trailhead. Be sure to look both ways as you cross Walker Rd. and the other campground access roads. When you get to the Green Gate the real climbing starts. The best part of this trail is heading back towards the trailhead - there's lots of downhill goodness. Be aware that many sections are not rideable so be prepared to hike your bike. There are rocks and roots on some climbs that will stop you from flowing. Expect to shift A LOT because the drastic changes between mellow to steep climbs are a constant. Also, about every mile and a half you have to cross a campground road so you'll never feel like you are truly mountain biking.

Great shuttle ride. Leave a car at the bottom of Sundog then start at top of 305. Nice 12 mile mostly downhill ride.
