ALthough it is a rough descent, it is all easily ridable and the trail worth the trip. The climb from the old pass road is great after passing the new pass highway, there are a few clusters of aspens that are incredible. At the second trail intersection you can detour left and climb an alpine meadow for 2 miles (incredible wild-flowers but lots of FLIES--bring the DEET) before turning around at the WIlderness boarder and resuming the descent down the Canyon. At the stream there is a downed tree to cross to avoid getting your feet wet...or just point-er straight and enjoy the cooling off!
