“A beautiful backcountry descent through rock gardens and cedar groves with boardwalks and bridges.”— Aaron Baldwin
The large cedar groves and the associated boardwalks and bridges are a highlight of this trail. The large trees are impressive to behold, and they block out the sun which keeps the meandering trail free of vegetation. Cedar trees grow in wet areas and there are numerous streams, springs, and seeps. Many of the wet areas have boardwalks that are a joy to ride.
The end of the trail burned in 2015. Unfortunately, the fire destroyed the bridge over Fish Creek at the end of the trail. But the burned area is surprisingly enjoyable to ride though. In the summer of 2016, vegetation was already retuning, with an orange-colored moss covering large areas of ground, interspersed with other greenery and some wildflowers. The trail is in good shape but the surface is a very dusty ash.
