Description

This trail starts from the very top of Blue Mountain at the Lookout Tower. There are great views at the start and after that you won't have time to look around because it gets fast and rowdy! To get to the start, you can climb the main Blue Mountain road for about 13 miles.

The ride is super fun if you like loose, rocky trails that motorbikes enjoy as well. Be aware of motorbikes ascending the trail. It is singletrack the whole way down the mountain. There are some small rock drops and very loose switchbacks depending on the weather. There are some trails that shoot off to the right as you are descending, but if you stay on the main trail it will drop you at the bridge that crosses Hayes Creek. To follow Deadman's Ridge proper to Deadman's Point, turn right after a small rise in the trail and climb another 20 feet. Then zip along the ridge as it opens up out of the trees. The trail has branches to the right but the main trail brings you to a rocky point you can climb to see great views of the valley.

There are no trail signs for this trail, but just make sure to not go down a trail marked 'Nature Trail' as bikes are not allowed on that trail. The start of each of these trails are closed. Deadman's is used more heavily and will be obvious after the first couple of turns.
