Parts are very muddy in winter/spring. Use caution.
Access to this trail is best from Hope, where you'll continue straight across Trail 1000 onto Forbidden Forest. Forbidden Forest is a fun, but surprisingly strenuous rolling and winding trail that parallels Trail 1000.
At 2 or 3 spots, you can leave Forbidden Forest through a bail-out trail to the left that will take you to Trail 1000. If you accidentally bail out onto the road, if you ride a bit down the road, you'll find another trail that will put you back on Forbidden Forest. There are a few steep, technical pitches on Forbidden Forest that are expert level.
