Motorcycle trail that is sort of rideable on a mountain bike BUT significant sections are unrideable. Long sections that require pushing up hill. After Durrwood creek crossing the trail becomes faint and it’s easy to miss it—the obvious line of traffic is east (Cedar creek trail?)—and then deadfall makes it hard to continue and hard (impossible?) to find. We turned around about 2.5 to 3 miles from the river. As my buddy describes it, a horrible trail but worth it—but only once!
