Trail Review(s)
Rider - Eric
This was a short out and back ride.  You could also make a loop of it by riding roads.  You should not see too many people back here.  A few trails in the area go into the Zirkel Wilderness area where bikes are NOT allowed.  Please respect those trails. You will find yourself crossing the river and following a smaller creek for awhile.  This is a nice scenic ride.
Would you ride again?
Yes
Any suggestions?
Make sure you don't go too early in the spring.  The South Fork of the Elk River runs strong through here.
