Overview

Description

It is recommended to ride this trail downhill from the junction with Polecat. While most people don't go above the junction with Polecat up to #313, there is no reason that you can't. Yes there is more hiking than biking on the way up, but you get another mile on singletrack as a reward on the way back down.

At the junction with Polecat, climb up to the top of the small knob and put on the body armor, drop the seat and enjoy the swoopy upper ridge crest. A few rocks along the edge can be used as small launching pads.

After a half mile there is small climb through a granite outcropping and back onto the ridge. The trail continues to be be fast along the ridge line, but soon enough, drops off the crest becoming steeper, rutted, and rocky. Thread your way up and around the rocks and roots, get way back for when the trails falls away through a series of switchbacks down to the creek, and watch out for a decent root drop at the bottom.

Just because the last mile and a half is a lower grade doesn't mean it gets easier. There are creek crossings, hidden holes and rocks, and a trail half obscured by shrubbery. Maintain your momentum and get ready to ride by feel.
