This is a beautify ride with plenty of challenging single track on a ridge surrounding the Methow Valley. The ride begins with a steep ascent up a forest service road followed by plenty of rolling single track. The single track meanders through sage covered hillsides and piney forest before a hair raising descent back to your vehicle. Outside of Moab, this is one of my favorite all time rides. It is not for beginners unless they are very willing to get off the bike and walk down some of the technical sections.
