Hike it; don't bike it. Hardest mountain bike ride I've ever been on. Spent 80% of the time pushing the bike. Trail conditions were extremely muddy and rooted.

This trail offers spectacular views and excellent singletrack that wanders through pine and aspen forests at the base of Wilson Peak. To get the most bang for your buck, ride it from the Sunshine Campground towards Fall Creek Road. There are some long sustained climbs, but the rolling sections in the middle and the downhill at the end are well worth it. The trail opens to motorcycles at the end of June each year. It is open to bikers and hikers earlier, but be ready to deal with a ton of deadfall and blowdown.
