As I prepared my bike at the staging area, a local [unnamed] aid Little Pine t. was a bitchin ride. He warned me that I would have run high and shoulder my bike to clear one of the landslide sections. As I was riding alone, I took him at his word. At 2.5 miles up the trail there is a ride on the right called Cameasu Connector. Not near the exposure as Buckhorn but just as fun. It was about 4 miles down and up to Paradise road.Then an easy pedal, with a mile of singletrack back to the traihead. The first 2.5 miles up Buckhorn will eork you out.
It was a less itimidating ride
