“A quick loop off of Westgard Pass with some fun doubletrack and a good singletrack descent.”— Rick Ianniello
Climb 4S01B up through a pass, continuing onto 35E309 and turn right on 35E310 at the top of the pass. This turns into a fun descent through a gully. At the bottom of this road, you'll get pointed up a hill to the right onto 35E311 (don't go left!). The road rolls, then goes up a steep hill to a 4-way intersection at a small pass. Turn left on the unmarked road, 8S109.
This rolls, drops down a hill, and hits White Mountain Road. Watch for traffic, and go straight across to the dirt road on the other side (4S01G). A short climb and this ends where a singletrack marked with a forest service sign starts, Westgard Pass Trail.
The singletrack drops down, rocky at first passing below some ledges. After a switchback, the trail drops into a gully where it gets fast and fun. You come out on another doubletrack at the bottom of a wash.
Turn right and descend this road to Hwy 168. Turn right then climb up 168, over Westgard Pass and back to your car.
