Trail shared by Matt Henderson

A fun all-around ride and a good stepping stone for beginners. Little climb, little technical, little downhill.

Description

This is a fun track if you live in the area for a quick, good all-around ride.There are some easier routes and harder routes all around for beginners or for more experienced riders who want to stay on a technical track. Once you get around the mountain, you can keep going up further for a little longer ride (few miles) and lead back to the trail. Careful on the back end as there can be some steep parts. Once the descent is done on the back end, the singletrack along the ridge is very fun!

Hard pack and some river pebbles to ride through. Makes it tough to get around going CCW.
