Description

The William Pogue NRT has had a number of fires cross its path over the years, so you'll pass through a number of different environments. The trail starts up on the pass below the Trinity mountains and descends through groves of burned and unburned forest. The trail passes by some amazing cliffs and large rocky formations as you descend through meadows and stay high above the river. Eventually, the trail will start to get closer to the river and you'll become more exposed with steep hillsides.

As the trail flattens out you'll come to your first bridge. Take this across the river and you'll enter an old burn from the 90's. The brush can be thick in this section and you'll now be climbing before descending again. The trail then travels through the old burn for a couple of miles before crossing the river again. Now you'll make your final climb up onto a bench above the river. This bench is very exposed for about a mile and any fall could result in plunging about 500ft to the river below. Make sure to ride within your ability on this section. Finally, the trail turns away from the river and switchbacks down to the road.
