A multitude of trail combinations that make it very easy to make your ride into an all day affair. This trail has everything from the easy flowy trails to black diamond descents through rock gardens.

We loved this little Wilderness in the middle of town. We didn't see litter or trash on the trails near parking area 16 at all.

Not a fan. While beautiful, it may be too convenient and the trails are full of inconsiderate people who like to leave dog poop, cigarette butts, bottles, cans, broken glass and garbage.

Beautiful views. Well-traveled, pretty busy trail. Unfortunately quite a bit of garbage on trail.
