“A loop on fast, flowy singletrack.”— Jane Patten
Descend down upper Caribou Ridge Trail 79, about a mile down you'll come across a picnic area, cross the FS road and continue down #79. Approximately 1.4 miles down, you'll reach a fork, look for a tiny trail sign posted to a tree for Trail 258. This right down 258 bypasses the advanced, technical section of lower Caribou Ridge Trail 79.
The top of Trail 258 has a few twisty corners then opens up to a traverse down to lower Trail 257. Watch for tree limbs sticking out as you ride. Trail 258 is about three miles long, once you hit the intersection of 257 you begin the final fun descent. Watch for one off-camber, technical section before you reach the creek crossing.
