Great singletrack and doubletrack loop in the Owyhees with great views, a fast downhill, and a slalom course through Hardtrigger Canyon. Lots of fun.
Some steep, rocky climbs, fast descents, creek crossings, and lots of fun.
Start off from the Wilson Creek
trailhead. Ride up Mr Wilson's Warmup (W100). After crossing Wilson Creek
, take a right onto NW Passage (W211 to W200
). After climbing to the top of the plateau at 4 Corners intersection, take a right to stay on W200
to descend Hardtrigger Drop
. Halfway down, take a right to again stay on W200
. At the bottom, take W261
or the road downhill into Stuart Gulch. Cross Hardtrigger Creek and look for a faint trail that is W270
that leads into the cliffy Hardtrigger Canyon. Ride the singletrack down the canyon crossing the creek about 10 times.
At a fork in the trail, either take a left to hike-a-bike above a waterfall, or continue straight to cross the creek and climb a steep hill that becomes a 4WD road high above the canyon. Follow the 4WD road and take a right at the next major intersection to continue on Road 37152. Follow 37152 until you come to a gate that marks the start of a singletrack that shortcuts 37152 and 37159. You'll need to pass through a barbed wire gate. Follow the singletrack until you come to Road 37159 and again pass through a barbed wire gate. Immediately after the gate, take a right onto W230
that gently climbs a ridge. Descend the ridge and take a right onto Road 37158. Cross Wilson Creek
and take a left on W37166 to return to the parking lot.
