This trail is exclusively tight singletrack. The topography ranges from hills to riverbottom in about equal portions. This is a fairly technical trail with some difficult side hill descents and river bluff hugging sections

Summary:
Really fun, flowing trail. Adrenaline junkies and climbers may be disappointed, but if you enjoy settling into a fast smooth flow, it delivers. Just what the doctor ordered after a 95degree day of hammering at Clear Springs..... give your legs a break and have some tight twisty fun. Props to the guys who put this trail in and maintain it - I wish I'd made it out sooner, and I'll DEFINITELY be back. Thanks, and good job!

Recommended Route:
Drop by the trailhead for a map. Watch for the orange tape, and don't fall in the river.

Summary:
Lots of fun! Tight, twisty, technical! Laid out real well! Thanks Guy's! Had a couple of muddy spots, but we rode through it all without stopping. Some reroutes are probably needed near the river edge as the trail is literally hanging, but you can go to the side as needed. Be sure to try the mega climb across the road on the last Mile or so. Very few will make it without pushing! Grat fun, we will be back!

Recommended Route:
Keep the orange ribbon on your right

Summary:
Super trail. If you ride it the right way from the trail head(where the mail box is) there is a short downhill section of tight singletrack and gravel. If you want a fast ride then ride the trail in reverse(clockwise). You catch all of the downhills this way, be careful you don't bail into the river. It gets close at times. Lots of fun for everyone from beginner to hotrods. Good place for the family to come for a camping and riding weekend. We ride it almost every saturday at about 4:00PM(before the early dark of winter gets here)if any one is interested in a big ride

Recommended Route:
either way

Summary:
Really great trail. Alot of effort in the trail layout. Plenty twisties. A little water, a little mud, a little sand, a little hard pack. This trail had it all. I WILL RIDE IT AGAIN.
