Description

This is a generally moderate ride with no particularly technical stretches.

However, getting to the highest point is grueling.

Mostly double track.

Some parts of the single track are obscured in springtime due to plants.

Most areas are smooth, even if you are off the trail, so keep going until you rejoin the track.

The highest point of the ride is a mountaintop that requires some bike carrying and quite difficult walking.

Some of this one kilometer stretch has areas where there is no obvious track, just keep heading towards the summit.

Once you get to the top it's mostly down for the rest of the ride (with some short climbs).

The trail just before the sandy red gulch section was blocked by intentionally placed branches most recently.

The last few kilometers are through fields and pastures.

You'll generally stay on the right side near the fenceline until you get down to the newly-cut zigzag dirt road that exits the last ravine in the small town of Galavasay (aka Galvasay).

Depending on the water level, you may be fording the stream at the bottom.
