Overview

Description

From the trailhead, you'll immediately begin a grueling 5-mile ascent. The difficulty of this trail lies in the grade of the climb, not the trail surface which is mostly non-technical. The forest setting is absolutely beautiful as it winds you around massive granite slabs and tight switchbacks. Every clearing in the trees will award you with breathtaking views for miles.

Keep heading past the summit for more spectacular views and amazing trail cut across the beautiful mountainside. Take a picture and retrace your tracks. On the way down the only thing slowing you down will be your own comfort with speed, that and switchbacks.

This descent is seriously fun, fast, and flowy! Just imagine how jealous all your friends will be because they couldn't ride today.

Raining & 38° a little slippery, but ridable. 2000' climb in first 3.7 miles 9% grade! 5.3mi to top then back. Connects to other trails at top.

Most locals would recommend you take Trail Creek Road to goose Creek Road to forest Service Roads. Ridden as an out and back, the climbing is brutal. 15mi
