Description

This trail begins from the end of the South Fork of Ross Creek trail, with a mellow ride up the valley. There are some recent burns in the area that can result in a number of down trees. Trail crews do the best the can in the summer months, so the trail is going to be clearer towards the end of July.

After a mellow creekside ride you'll come to the last mile which will switchback up to a pass. The switchbacks can be loose in sections, but will be rideable by most experienced riders, so make sure to give them a try.

Once at the pass you'll have a steep ride down to Alturas Creek. Make sure to bear right at the junction since a left turn will take you into the Sawtooth Wilderness where cycling is not permitted.
