RIDE SUMMARY:
A long, steady, not-too-steep climb on the way out, and ripping fast downhill with switchbacks that come up as fast as you want on the way back. In between, there’s nice, shady cross-mountain riding. The sounds of I-80 are left behind soon enough on the climb out, and the views from the backside of the ride are of deep wilderness.

DESCRIPTION:
There’s a nice, modest climb out from the trailhead of 1,355 feet which peaks at 8 miles followed by 5 miles of downhill. The downhill will be entertaining at whatever speed you can handle it, but be aware that at certain speeds the switchbacks come up very fast, and blowing past them into the brush is not unheard of. The ride finishes with a three mile up-and-down to get back to the starting point.
