    Nice trail - wish it was longer.

    Fun little ride if you are looking for something to hit up before a float trip. Not long enough to make it a destination by itself, but definitely check it out if you're in the area.

    Reviewing Painter Ridge:
    *****

    This is a very well-done trail for single track. It is largely dirt and small rock but is currently heavily leaf-covered. It was mostly dry yesterday but could be slick if wet. There are two loops (blue and red), and each has an extension (or entry points, depending on where you start). The blue extension has some fun, tight switchbacks and makes for a great climb and fast descent. The red extension ends (or begins) at the bottom of echo Bluff at sinking creek. It is the more rocky and technical section of the trail but tons of fun and leads to opportunity for riding along the creek. There are a couple, unsuspecting steep, rock stair and narrow drop-offs (I walked them) which I didn't find consistent with the overall trail design and certainly not for beginners. The mix of deciduous and fir along the bluff with the creek below make for great scenery. Watch, too, for hikers and wild horses as it is a multi-use trail. I rated it advanced to account for the steep grade (over 20% in some sections) and the loose rock obstacles.
