“An awesome, rowdy, moto descent via Old Monarch Pass with many creek crossings.”— Zach Allen
This descent feels more remote than other descent options off of the Crest.
Start this ride the same as you would for the Monarch Crest Trail: From the top of Monarch Pass - US 5, park at the parking lot near the scenic tram building..
To start the ride, go up the dirt road behind the tram building. Stay right to get onto the Monarch crest singletrack. You are going to pass intersections for Fooses Creek and Green's Creek. You are looking for Agate Creek Trail #484, which will peel off to your right to descend to the west side of US 50 - Monarch Pass. From here, you descend over 10 miles of superb singletrack down to where you've stashed a vehicle on US 50.
