West Fork Professional Review and Guide
"After your initial climb from the Whitewater Center, you’ll pretty much stick to the sides of the ridges on this ride. FS 45 does have a bit of a hill. You’ll see all of the Bear Paw Loop, most all of the Chestnut Mountain Loop and all of the West Fork Loop. These are the oldest trails in this system and a pleasure to ride. Highlights: Spotty views, smooth single track, one long climb but mostly dips."
