There are more than 20 trails in the Galena system. Generally, they are cross-country trails, weak on technical features. I rode up Gladiator and down Rip and Tear on my first loop. Gladiator is not good climbing singletrack but Rip and Tear was fun on the way back down.
I rode the Grinder from east to west. The eastern half was a little exhilarating on the down-slope sections. The western half is just an easy climb on an old fire road. I didn't ride the Lower Grinder Trail.
Next I rode down the Psycho Ridge Trail which is a little schizophrenic - it starts out gentle and easy but then gets steeper and more technical. I didn't ride the 6 mile long Spring Creek Trail.
