The trail tackles the mountain with a minimum of switchbacks and traverses. Riding this as a shuttle leaves some problems. The gravel roads are hard on vehicles. The grades are steep and the last couple of miles are narrow and require high clearance. Also, the end of the road (at the upper trailhead) provides little parking. Watch for hikers all along the trail. This ride is for experts only - people who can descend steep, technical pitches without skidding. The trail is rugged and exposed with steep drop-offs, ditch-like conditions, roots, rocks, and sand. the ride begins about 25 miles east of Eugene (approximately 14 miles west of Oakridge).
