Long steady dirt road climb followed by dreamy single track descents
From the parking lot, head out on Elden Lookout Road and start your long climb for approximately 7 miles. At the 7 mile point you will see a trailhead through a fence. Follow it up 50 ft to Sunset trail. Take a left (right takes you to Elden Lookout about two miles further up)and enjoy the view and a tight section on the catwalk. Approximately 2 miles further down Sunset you'll come to a fork. Stay right and ride to Shultz tank 2 miles further. Once at the tank look for a trail across the parking lot. This is the start of Schultz Creek Trail. Tighten the helmet strap and enjoy the fast single track back to the car.
