This hiking/biking trail climbs the 3,323 ft (1 km) of elevation in five miles and then descends about 700 ft (.21 km) to the upper trailhead. An intermediate to difficult hike, it is extremely popular with mountain bikers for its downhill reward. The first section is fast and smooth with sporadic roots and rocks. After three miles you’ll arrive at Crale Creek Rd. From there it's another 2.5 miles (4 km) of the same style of singletrack. Mountain bikers should watch speed as hiker traffic increases near the lower trailhead.
