“One loop taking in many of Naseby's best bits of singletrack.”— Almonzo Wilder
When you're done having fun near Hoffman's Lake head uphill on trails that will eventually converge on Walt Brennan, which includes some quality banked and flowing riding through clear-cut that will take you toward the north and east to Wet Gully Road. Crossing the road will put you on Busted Butte, which flows through eroded mining gullies with cool vistas to Ramp Road. A jog to the east (left) on Ramp Road will take you to the top of Blu Man, which is a downhill scream back to the lower part of the forest. A few hundred meters before the Mount Ida Water Race, a left turn onto Move Em On will take you to Translator Road, which you can use to get back up to the top of the forest.
At the top of Translator Road, jog to the east on Eastern Road to the top of Heaphy Highway, which is another great downhill cruise. This can be ridden all the way to the bottom of the forest, but you want to look for an easily-missed left (east) through the clearcut onto Wall Street. After an unremarkable first hundred meters or so, Wall Street drops into wild eroded badlands with some very steep descents and insane banked turns in tight gullies.
This area offers innumerable options for fun, and you'll want to explore a bit. Eventually, its worth finding your way north onto Claim Jumper, which heads east along a deepening eroded chasm formed by outflows from the water used in the mining operations above. This is fun riding in a cool landscape, ending at the trickle of water in the Hog Burn. Just downstream, you can pick up Wall Street to get you back into the heart of the badlands to explore more of the riding features and old mining operations.
Heading south and west through the badlands will get you on Gold Claim, an easy trail that will take you to a worthwhile signed sidetrack to a lookout and then downhill to Translator Road and the swimming dam where you started.
