Leaving Bottle Prairie this trail heads downhill for a 2.5 mile, very fast singletrack ride through the forest along eightmile cr. Although there is a lot of downed trees in the area I didnâ€™t find any across the trail, but stay alert, its easy to gain a lot of speed on this section. At the junction with Eightmile crossing (start option #2) proceed left, at this point you will re-acquaint yourself with 1st, 2nd and maybe 3rd gears once again as the trail climbs about 900â€™ via switchbacks in the next 1.5 miles. Once on top of the ridge you will run across a short spur to the R that leads to t he base of a fire lookout station at 4627â€™, a great spot for a break. Back on the main trail youâ€™ll have .5 miles of fast downhill before crossing a F.S. rd and a bit more climbing before the final mile of single track back to Bottle Prairie.
This a great singletrack trail that is well maintained and obviously a popular route for the locals here. Please ride with respect.
