Summary:
Hello fellow Mountain Bikers,
I ride this trail everyday, you will probably see me cuz I will be leaving you in the dust. I am probably one of the best in the business and if you try to top me your gunna get stomped (metaphorically for beaten to the finish line). I have witnessed all there is to on this trail and feel that nobody on earth will be able to ever compare what they have been through to my trail experiences. Here's a few things I have witnessed and experienced. I have seen two wolf packs at once, one was stacked on top of the other. I have seen three wolf packs together and that one was a three level stacker. I have seen Jesus four times in one day, and Ted Nugent five times in one hour. Recently I have gotten bored with using my mountain bike around the trail so I ride a full grown black bear on mescaline while drinking homemade whiskey out of a pigs bladder. Yeah I know your life sucks compared to mine, but let's face it you weren't born with the knowlege of a 67 year old black guy.

Recommended Route:
Forget about it. you probably won't even make it a sixth of the way around this route and if you do watch out for the pit of venomous snakes strategically located where you won't even expect it.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
You should try riding in your front yard just in case you fall down from being too fat and having no skills

Summary:
This trail is an under-rated gem! Great for riders with less experience, the west side of the triangular "loop" is more challenging, and the south side is long, but mostly downhill. The patrol adopted and re-marked the trail this summer, so you will find USFS bike trail markers and "reassurance" markers every 2-2.5 miles. Can be rocky in places, and slick when wet, but has great scenery. I have seen a wolf on the trail, watching me come up the hill, and lots of moose tracks. Park on the SW corner, just north of Temperance River Campground.

Recommended Route:
Clockwise, either from FR 170 (The Grade) and FR 339, (Rice Lake Rd.) or From Sawbill Trail and FR 338 (Pancore Lake Rd.) NE to Erickson Rd. N to FR 339, E to FR 338 and SW back to your car.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
we hope to build some singletrack in this area in 2003. In the meantime, try Timber-Frear Loop, and other bike routes suggested on the McKenzie North Shore "103 map.
