The trail climbs and descends following the minor peaks along the ridgeline. The southernmost mile, used to access Copper Canyon Trail #10 from FR235, is the most rideable and best maintained. Continuing north to Hop Canyon Trail #25 is also possible, but will involve a bit of hike-a-bike.
Riding from the north is an alternative way to access Hop Canyon Trail #25. The initial descent from North Baldy is challenging and fun. However, thick growth, scree slopes and steep grades often require hiking between Trail #25A and the trailhead to Hop Canyon Trail #25.
