Trail Review(s)
Rider - Eric
The road ride up was just a slow grind, but once you got to the top, the trail was really nice.  It stayed high along the ridge for a few miles giving you great views of Mt Hood.  The trail had a really nice mix of smooth single track and a few rocks thrown in to keep it interesting.  I especially liked the rock debris field early on after climb on the road.
Would you ride again?
Yes
Any suggestions?
If you are here around the end of August, finish your water bottle and fill it with Huckleberries!
