“A predominantly downhill trail with smooth, flowy sections mixed in with technical rock moves and punchy climbs.”

Winter seasonal closure for this BLM land is Dec. 1st through April 15th.
Sweet Mother can be ridden in both directions, however, most will ride it as a downhill trail, working counterclockwise. Assuming you accessed the top of Sweet Mother by climbing Crimson Ride
, take a left and head west on a doubletrack. Soon the doubletrack turns into a singletrack and begins working its way downhill with a series of twists and turns.
The tread is generally smooth, but there are some creative rock moves that if ridden will present a small technical challenge to intermediate riders. There are a few punchy climbs towards the end of the trail that will keep your heart rate elevated.
When you arrive back at the intersection with Half Time
, take a right to access Zeni's Trail
or take a left to access Ole' Roller
. You can also take a left and climb Crimson Ride
again to ride Jasper
and create a longer experience.
