Review: We rode this section after riding the john muir overlook trail. The trailhead is directly across the gravel road (Divide Rd) from the John Muir Overlook trail. It is fast and flowy at first then quickly decends down roughly 1500ft to the river. We like to call this area Middle Earth. The decent follows an old rail line and you can feel the cross ties under your tires as you bump your way down. This area is very technical and presents many difficult sections....FUN FUN FUN!. Once you get to the river bed there are many options to jump in the creek. There are numerous other trails that can be found down there where one can explore all day. We followed the John Muir then climbed back up to the Rock Creek trailhead then back to the gravel road. It was a tough climb out, lots of hike/bike sections but overall rideable.

Review: Nice open trail at the beginning then descends into a creek valley and joins up with the John Muir Trail. We combined the two and utilized Divide Road for a 9 mile route.
