This sensational ride weaves around the base of Dirty Face Ridge within the Olympic Range, just outside the boundaries of the national forest and the Buckhorn Wilderness Area. Wide switchbacks in the forest road take you up the west side of the Dungeness River to some adventuresome single track on the eastern side of the river below Dirty Face Ridge. The trail is steep and narrow and has several drop-offs. It’s a ripping good ride that will take you by surprise.
