“A steep, rocky trail to the summit of Abercrombie Mountain.”— Kyle F
Electric Mountain Bikes Unknown
At about 1.4 miles, the trail comes to a 'T' intersection with North Fork Silver Creek Trail #119. Heading north/northeast (left) from there, the trails grade lets up for a little bit but soon becomes steep again, and the surface becomes more rocky. The scenery will begin to change as you reach the sub-alpine zone; there will be sparse tree cover, open meadows, and wonderful views all around.
The final 3/4 of a mile to the summit will become even steeper and more rocky, which will likely be hike-a-bike for all but the most fit. If you like steep technical riding, you owe it to yourself to hike your bike to the summit for a rewarding descent back down to the junction with North Fork Silver Creek Trail #119.
