Mountain Biking Joe's Gulch To Nip 'n Tuck

  Add a review
#198 of 316 mountain bike trails in Idaho
#17,004 in the world

I've only seen people running this in reverse, I've only run it as follows...begin with half a mile of light climbing to warm up followed by a sustained, steep effort for maybe a mile (or so it seems). At the apex go straight through a 4-way and head downhill. Build speed as the downhill is short and again you find a very steep climb for just a few hundred meters. The rest is basically scenic downhill, first covering some swichbacks then finding a gravel road (go left) that takes you down into a meadow with spectacular views of the Sawtooth Range (pictured). There are multiple options to turn and extend the ride but take the most obvious, counter clockwise track, well traveled path get back to the highway at Lower Stanley.
