“A fun downhill on the ridge north of Lake Como

This has been hidden from our maps to prevent overlap with existing trails, or because
our research has found there is no legal access.
Ride up FS 5621 fora half mile. Take a left at the intersection; the gate might be closed. Climb three miles to the end of the road. If you are lucky you'll find the start of the trail. The upper section doesn't get tons of use, and the trail tends to become a challenge to find. Once you find it the trail still has a habit of hiding until you lower. Just before crossing FS5621 the trail has become braided and the best route varies with the year.
Cross the road, then push or pedal your bike over the hillock, and drop back down. When you hit the old fire road, take a right before regaining the trail after a couple of hundred yards. Go anaerobic on the next climb, and watch out for the rocks.
Bounce through the rocks until the trail starts to gain some flow and spits you out on a doubletrack. Stay right and have fun, the doubletrack is a great place to pass your slower friends and to toss a few whips on the kelly humps at the bottom.
