Trail Description
About this trail
This section may be ridden as an out-and-back or by riding the road to the base of Snowbowl and descending from there. Climbing the singletrack is mostly mellow with just a few small-ring bits and no hike-a-bike, highly recommended. The descent from Snowbowl is the money, though, dropping like 1600 feet through aspens, pines and boulders, nearly all downhill, slim and speedy, with killer switchbacks and hillside traverses offering plentiful roots, rocks and other things to hop. Combine with the Hart Prairie segment for a 20-some mile intermediate epic.

Review: This passage is a total of 35 miles, however the section from Snow Bowl Rd to Aspen Corner is a MUST RIDE. Follow it up with the descent down to FR 418 and you'll smile all the way down - so fun!!

Review: Best during the monsoons (July-September) when the trail is tacky and the forest is super green and filled with wildflowers and mushrooms.
