Description

Follow the directions for the Payette Rim Loop. Approximately 200 feet into the singletrack on the Payette Rim Trail Descent (heading south), there's now a junction. Choose left/north to begin this new trail. The first portion has rocky singletrack that drops you onto an old road. Follow the old road north and it reduces down to overgrown singletrack. Near mile five, the new singletrack begins again and flows down to Warren Wagon Road with rock drops and alternate lines along the way.

Mix of everything. Flow, rocks, dust, flowers, creek crossing, road.

3 brand new sections of singletrack linked together by old logging roads. Hopefully, this section is just the start of great things to come. — 2h 12m
