Taylor Minnow Professional Review and Guide

"This ride is 12.3 miles long; a 5 mile out-and-back spur (2.5 miles each way) and a 7.3 mile loop. Fit racer types will have little difficulty with the moderately difficult climbing and somewhat technical descents found on the single-track sections of the ride. Casual riders can give this route a go and bail out if they find the trail too demanding.

The trail surface includes rocks, roots, sandy sections, and narrow areas where riders are exposed to steep drop-offs. Taylor Creek Trail can be combined with other forest roads and single-tracks to create longer or shorter options. The trailhead is about 25 miles northwest of Grants Pass."

Several foot bridges being out makes creek crossings mandatory. Amazing trail, but until they get the bridges fixed expect to get cold.
