Fun ride that follows the Taneum creek up to Fishhook Flats, which has some of the better singletrack trail in the area. Be prepared for many stream crossings, which makes it difficult to break at times. Also be prepared for a few sections with wet rocks and tree roots. But overall, this is a fun trail to ride.
