Tips:

I rode this trail over 10 years ago, and cannot remember where we parked, but the parking areas are marked on the map. Trails are nicely marked and easy to follow, there were a couple of steep climbs, but no 'white knuckle' moments. I remember being keenly disappointed because there was nothing to jump, but it was a ride worth the trailer trip.
