A series of switchbacks on an old forest road bordering Rich Hole Wilderness takes you up to the remains of Whiterock Tower and the top of Mill Mountain. On the knifelike spine of a ridge ride that follows, you'll enjoy good views as you skirt house-sized boulders. Getting down requires negotiating a steep section before coasting the last five miles along a well maintained forest road. Highlights: Long climb, borders wilderness, wooden steps, views, boulders, smooth trail.
