The trails which extend south of the Little Camas Creek include Red Hill Tr1223, Red Hill Spur Tr1223.1 and Red Devil Tr1221, with Tronsen Ridge as the southern boundary of this trail system.
The ride can start from the FR7104 Red Hill Tr1223 TH, or the Mission Ridge Tr1201 TH can also be used to access these trails.
A CCW from the Mission Ridge Tr1201 TH
View of the Mission Ridge TH enables the ride to end with the Red Hill Spur Tr1223.1 downhill. Starting from the FR7104 Red Hill Tr1223 TH results in tackling the rugged Red Devil Tr1221 terrain on the way back to the TH.
The steep, sustained ascents make this ride seem longer than it actually is, and lead many to use the forest roads to create a 15.4mi (4700' ascent) loop.
Better to arrange a shuttle than grind up 9.4mi of forest road for 5.8mi of downhill.
The Red Hill Tr1223 switchbacks are hike-a-bike and Red Devil Tr1221 in either direction involves some hike-a-bike, but for strong climbers a CCW loop of these two trails is the best option.
Red Hill Tr1223 can be linked with Tronsen Ridge Tr1204, using some unmarked singletrack, FR7200 and FR257, into a 20.5mi (6700' ascent) CCW loop.
A GPS is suggested, as some pathfinding is required on the unmarked and rarely used singletrack section, and FR257 is not much of a road. Plan for 7hrs and bring extra supplies, and be prepared for the full Red Hill Tr1223 downhill experience, a great way to end any ride.
