Description

Beginning at the Granite Basin/Katahn Drive trailhead, get ready because a mile and a half of relatively steep and at times rocky climbing awaits. Trail #341 provides the opportunity for a detour leaving the trail after about 0.6 miles and rejoining the trail at about the mile and a half mark. Towards the top before passing through the gate the Willow Connector Trail (#346) breaks away and heads west. To stay on the Willow Trail keep right and pass through the gate to crest the broad saddle. Don't forget to take a breather and soak in the view of the Granite Mountain Wilderness.

Once you catch your breath, it's time to shift into the big ring because you're about to be rewarded with several miles of fast flowing singletrack. The many rollers along the route provide ample opportunity for air time.

Eventually you'll pass through another gate where the Mint Wash Trail (#345) briefly shares a section with the Willow Trail (#347). Hang a right where the trails fork and enjoy the last mile and a half or so of smooth and easy singletrack.

Best to park at the other end, ride up, do other stuff and then finish coming down

Headed south from Wlmsn Vly trail head. Not super smooth initially. Lots of climbing. Ends with lots of chunk and loose rock. Not very fast. 5mi — 2h 00m
