Ride Summary: Some nice climbing on non motorized-trails, with some fast
rollers on moto-trails. Crazy-fast in the summer and treacherous in the winter.
Lots of roots and rocks both climbing and descending. The ride around Larch
Mountain is some of the fastest in the Forest. Aside from the ridge line trail in
the middle and a grunt near Wedekind, this is a great singlespeed trail.
