Ride Summary: This is a mind blowing little-big ride with a taste of epicness.
It is a killer combination of some excellent trail and scenery. #6 to Hells Creek
is primitive raw and real. The climb up #8 from Hells Creek will induce some
mild hallucinations and the psychedelic lime green ground cover on the sides of
the trail will just about send you over the top as your peripheral vision trips
itself out all the way to Wedekind.
#8 and #6 are blown out from a mudslide at the bottom of Hells Creek. Just
hike it on up and out to solid ground on #8 above the slide.
Yield to horses!
