The trail sidehills across steep slopes and flanks ridgelines, heading down, down, down. Sometimes you’ll be riding next to massive fir trees that tower to the sky, other times you’ll pop into open meadows that plunge to the rivers below. Just when you get in a groove you’ll hit a switchback, so keep your head up. While the trail is not particularly technical it does offer plenty of exposure in places, and sometimes the switchbacks are preceded by steep run-ins to test your bike handling skills. After a particularly exhilarating set of switchbacks the trail grade begins to soften and you’ll go from death-gripping the bars to having more fun. The landscape is a deep, dark green now, with moss and ferns covering everything in sight, including the rocks along the edge of the trail so don’t relax too much. If it is wet and the forest gnomes have been greasing the roots you’ll be sideways before you know it. Keep it mellow as the trail ends and connects with the Lower Goodman Trail to bring you to the trailhead along Highway 58.
