If your idea of fun is an 18 mile/3000 foot climb up boring fire roads followed by a 15 mile descent down singletrack that will throw everything at you, ending with yet more brutal climbing, then this is for you. The first part of the climb has a moderate grade, but the last half is brutal and unrelenting. Be in shape or shuttle it--if I ever do this one again, I will. As a shuttle, I'd give this four stars. Climb up the Logging Creek road for 7 or so miles and head left when the road meets Divide Road (the sign will indicate you are going toward White Sulphur Springs. Continue another 9 or so miles, past numerous trails. When you see a sign on your left that says Deer Park, you're getting close. A few more curves and you will see a sign indicating Pilgrim Creek to your left. The singletrack starts off extremely rough--long fields of baby heads, both loose and embedded. Then the trail begins its desdent. It gets crazy steem in places--hang your b*** off the back or go over the bars. There will be many drainage crossings with technical entry/exits. You will also cross Pilgrim Creek numerous times. , not always rideabe, so you will get wet. Along the route, you will encounter roots, rocks, drops, water, climbs, ruts, muddy bogs, loose dirt and sand--you name it. This trail is also very remote and there is no escape from its interior--be self sufficient. An adventure to be sure.
