Overview

This is a great loop for all levels and is great in either direction. That said, it's best-ridden CCW due to the switchbacks.

I kind of hate this trail, I had to hike a bike for 30% of the uphill. Super fun decent! Would not recommend. 6mi

A good ride if done CCW. There is a descent steep climb about 1.5 miles in that needs some work. It doesn't get ridden much and we didn't see any ... — 5h 00m

Rode this trail on 9/28/16 and it's in really rough shape! It felt a little like an expedition. Doesn't look like it gets much use at all - very washed out and rutted, super loose and chunky on the climbs and descents (not in a good way), seriously overgrown. I had to walk several of the uphill sections because there was just too much large loose rock on the trail. Several times I nearly lost the trail. The trailhead itself and the major trail intersections were actually really well signed, it was just some of the sections in between that were trouble. The downill was fairly fun intermediate tech but also generally pretty scruffy. I hate to recommend against a trail, but until this trail gets a serious facelift I'm not sure it's worth riding!

Rode on 2/16/17. Agree with the previous comments. Loose, technical, poor condition. Trail is decently marked but not well defined in some sections. Felt like a hiking trail to me...just needs someone with spare time to do trail work. That said it had some fun fast sections and the switchbacks were a fun downhill challenge. Have to be open minded with this one. Adventure! Feb 16, 2017
Trail hasn’t been groomed forever. No way should this be a featured trail. Looked like nobody had ridden it in months. May 19, 2018
