About this trail
run the trail south to north. the downhill at the end is amazing! Stunning views and rock out croppings most of the way since it is a ridge trail. This is an advanced, big and epic ride for sure. It is also in jeapordy of becoming a wilderness area, so get on it now! Just google North Fork Mountain trail and see how special it is

Review: Absolutely one of the best rides I've done. The trail is in great condition. Just a little overgrown in places with some high grass spots nothing major. I recommend having a shuttle or multiple cars so you can get dropped off at the start. To make a loop with the road section would be really difficult and there might not be enough daylight in the day. The trail is also very dry and exposed to a lot of sun being on top of the ridge almost the whole way. There was a spring around halfway but it wasn't flowing when we got there and there was only a sketchy pond left with water that should be boiled or well filtered to be safe. The trail has amazing views all along the way and when you get to the final descent you are in for one of the most thrilling rides ever. Technical at the top with steep rocky partsd but then smooths out and is blazing fast. I'm coming back for sure.

Review: Rode for the first time recently, and just a note on conditions: There are quite a few trees down across the trail, and several of the trail markers are down as well. Incredible ride, with scenery that is amazing. Wide variety of trail from grassy double track, technical single track, steep climbs, and very fun downhill to complete the ride. Some advice for first timers. Southern Trail Head: There are no markers along the road. Look for the tower, with two gates, at the top of North Fork Mountain. You can find the first trail marker not too far in along the grassy double track. Expect two very challenging climbs riding south to north. Also, towards the end, past Landis Trail, expect a downhill section of large, technical rocks. Take plenty of water.

Review: Rode this trail from south to north with a shuttle. Took about 3 hours. Saw 2 snakes and the overlooks are great. Epic ride. Sorry to hear access might be an issue. Last downhill is awesome.

Review: Also rode this for the first time during the second IMBA awareness ride on Oct. 17th. Spectacular scenery and a technical riders dream. Did the same ride up Redman and then north on North Fork Mtn Trail to the trailhead on Smoke Hole Rd. then back up the road to the parking area.

Similar Trail: Huckleberry Trail and Judy Springs Trail as the IMBA Epic.

Review: Just did this as part of the IMBA awareness ride (had appx 50 riders) Awesome is the only way to describe this trail. Did the ride as a loop starting at Redman TH then riding to the northern end and riding the road back (19 mile loop) this is as much as most riders would want to do without a shuttle.
