A demanding road climb will take you to the summit, then you will enjoy an exciting single-track descent off of the top. Be careful, the descent can be too thrilling. While it is a climb, the views from the top seem to confirm your good judgment in choosing this ride. However, the descent is so torturous that you may be tempted to blame the selection of this ride on your riding partner. The top is very steep; rain and run-off flow straight down the gut. This results in tire-grabbing, ditch-like conditions. The trailhead for this ride is at Scout Lake, approximately 15 miles northwest of Sisters.
