A massive climb up the center of White Ranch Open space park.

Description

There can be heavy hiker and equestrian traffic near on the bottom half of this trail. It starts at the East parking lot as you travel through 2 horse gates - please respect the horses. After the 2nd horse gate there is a very challenging rock garden. The trick is to keep your speed up.

The gradual climb from the rock garden to the stream crossing is very heavily trafficked by hikers, bikers and horses. Ride with caution.

Once at the stream you'll start a 1700+ vertical ascent over packed red rock, loose over hard pack, loose rock, gravel, and finally dirt with roots.

There are some steep sections (both up and down) that will challenge intermediates, particularly the large water bars.

On the descent there is an awesome double drop just west of the intersection with Wippletree trail.
