Mountain Biking Longs Ranch Road

This is an old rough 4x4 road that no longer allows for motor vehicle use (except the forest service) and is a blast to come down. There's lots of room for other trail users, but we saw none. It's very simple to follow, and if your looking for Ute Pass (which we missed) it's at the first sign of a major road intersection - there's about 3-4 roads that converge here. As of today (Sept. 13, 2014) the trails was very rough because of all the rain and some forest service traffic - on my Am Bike, I had no issues, but others with me on a hardtail did crash twice. A must have for this ride are GOOD BRAKES! This is a fairly steep and fast trail going down, if your a little timid on DH runs, you'll likely cooked your rotors by the time you get to the bottom.
