Description

The equestrian bypass is legal for bikes, so please yield to horses and use common sense. There is a creek crossing just after you turn right onto the bypass at the southwestern end, so be prepared to get your feet wet in the early spring months. It has a few challenging switchbacks on the climbs and the descents. The flowing descents through the narrow trees are a blast. It is well marked until you hit the service road at the end. Do not enter the private property on the right when you hit Forest Service Route 5N56. Continue down the hill about a mile and take a right at the fork. This last mild climb will take you back to the Logging Museum.
