Need to Know
The junction at the top is not marked well. Be sure not to venture west on Ten Mile Ridge Trail #157
accidentally, bikes are not permitted on that section...
There are motorcycles on this trail at times and there is no water up top.
This trail is best enjoyed as a downhill thrill ride after riding up Wapiti Creek Trail #160
and down Ten Mile Ridge Trail #157
. This is a great trail back into the valley. Anyway, this trail starts at a junction on Ten Mile Ridge Trail #157
where bikes are not allowed to go further west.
Enjoy a traverse above McDonald's, MacDonald Creek that is. Then shoot out onto a ridge and down to a knob with views of the valley. The trail continues a steady drop down into Blue Jay Creek before spitting you out at the bottom all too soon.
If you want a 3,000-foot climb from the bottom, you better eat your Wheaties as there is no rest without stopping, just a steady climb to the top.
