After going through the gate, you will ride for about 1/2 mile through some trees along side a small creek, going through the creek twice. Then you will make one of the steepest climbs of your life, but once you get through it, you will be on the flats. After the steep climb the rest of the uphill is rather easy, and the downhill side of the loop is non stop speed, turns, and jumps. The ride is a total blast and very scenic. Enjoy!

Great trail, and nobody seems to know about it (except a few ATV'ers).
The majority of the trail is very narrow doubletrack (ATV-sized). Mix of open meadow and forest. Fun creek crossings. Cows graze the land in the fall.

Recommended Route:
This trail is actually two forest service trail loops, plus a few dead-enders. Because of its infrequent use in the spring/early summer, expect the shrubbery along the side of the trail to be thick and catch your legs quite a bit. In the fall, the dang motorcycles and ATVs tear it up pretty good. Follow the directions as above. After the top of the mega-climb, the trail forks. Best way to ride is left, you will cross a small stream (usually dry). Continue until the trail forks again to the left (easy to miss). This is some fun twisty stuff taking you over the beautiful high plain. You climb back up the other side back into the forested stuff. From there you can loop back to where you made your second left, OR you can climb up the mountains to the northwest, and you'll get a nice downhill back to the first fork and the beginning of the climb.

Beautiful area, overlooks Anderson, close to Mountain Home, not well known. You'll feel lonely. Great combo!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
If you live in Mountain Home and don't want to ride the crowded Boise stuff, this is the only game in town. Go up the road another 30 minutes to Fairfield and Soldier Mountain for another great ride. Check out knobbytireseries.com for the race they hold there.
