A great ride anytime, but be prepared to get your feet wet. There are no fewer than 14 creek crossings! Much is on gravel forest service roads, but don't let that or the distance fool you. The last two miles are very technical (and beautiful) and you may want to spend some time exploring around. Highlights: Spectacular views, creek crossings, sheer road cuts, timber cuts.
