North Fork Mountain Trail is a gem of a ridge ride that goes from Rt 33 north to Smoke Hole Road. The first three miles are usually where the most carnage happens with wrecks, flat tires and broken chains. Which all of those things happened. Then its all big rollers until it starts getting some hike a bikes and then some serious moves towards the end. The downhill is so super fun that it ranks in the top five for sure. Our group moved quick. It was a little cool and windy, but clear as a bell. We had a 12 mile road ride back to Princess Snowbird campsite where our burritos awaited. Awesome views and a superior ridge, plus the good company made this an outstanding day in my life. I had a good wreck on an uphill and fell to the low side of the trail. It was a bit scary, but I was fine.
