Description - Category -  Beginner, Tinge of intermediate SSS - Single track Stream Crossings Switchback oh and VERTICAL

We parked at stony creek and followed the trail all the way up!  Starts off double track and turns into really nice but smooth single track.  Lots of moderate stream crossings and long switchbacks.  Once at the top there is a ridge trail that had great views through the trees, more single track, Balls suck falls trail down (NOT MARKED), started with an off camber slight downhill, then fun bus driver switchback downhill with some small water bar logs to jump,  not too technical.  Couple more trails to the bottom - Pine tree, salt stump - good stuff..  If you want smooth single track this place gets 5 buckets..  No technicalities here though..  Oh there was a wire suspended foot bridge you can entertain yourself on for a minute..  In summary - Great workout, great single track, great scenery, just no tech's..

Pre-ride Music:   NIN - downward spiral (make that upward spiral)
Total Miles: 40
Elevation Change Feet -     15 mile loop was 2600 vert
