This is a great ride for someone looking to do some spinning and have some technical fun without spending all day or working all that hard. It’s also a perfect trail to give novice riders a chance to acclimate themselves to the wonders of singletrack. The Never-Ending Road is an easy up and down for a nice long warm-up, then Spencer Branch offers up a splendid lunch of buff, tech 1+ track sprinkled with some respectable technical challenges. The track can also be ridden as part of a loop linking the Fletcher Creek, Spencer Branch, and Middle Fork Trails. Tread: 2 miles of singletrack; 6.2 miles of gravel Forest Service road.
