Over Easy CLOSED
Approach to Over Easy CLOSED due to Timber Harvest
Over Easy is a self-contained loop of about 5.5 miles on overgrown skid roads north of Four Corners and Sand Blvd. It is a non-technical ride that would be an ideal novice loop if it was closer to a parking area, but it is a bit of a grunt to climb back up to Foothill Rd. Suggestion: be strong enough to complete a two hour (total length) ride before you descend into Over Easy.
Here's how to find Over Easy: from the main crossroads at Four Corners, head west on Foothill Rd. The big flat area at Four Corners narrows to a one lane dirt road. About 30 yards after it narrows, turn off to the right and go down Lower Tusk—look for a singletrack approximately 5 yards off the road. Pedal about 1/4 mile. Just before the wooden bridge that spans a fallen log, look over your right shoulder for the hidden entrance to Sidewinder trail. This singletrack leads you about 2/3 mile to Dyer Meadow at the west end of Rock & a Hard Place.
From Dyer Meadow, go north through the red gate and head down Whoop Dee Doo for about 1/2 mile to Sand Blvd. Turn right and ride about 0.3 mile to an open, white sandy area. Bear left in a sweeping, descending turn to begin Over Easy. The first half mile of Over Easy is a logging road. Approximately 0.5 mile after leaving Sand Blvd, come to a Y-junction. Bear right (the logging road continues to the left; you'll be returning on the left fork). Enjoy the next 1.6 miles of swooping, gradual downhill—most of which is remarkably smooth.
The most important junction is at approximately mile 2.1, about 50 yards after the overgrown skid road changes character to a more recently bulldozed road. The change is subtle, so pay attention. Turn hard left onto a descending road, which is often a bit overgrown. You'll know you've made the correct left turn if there's a wooden rail fence next to this road. Descend briefly, cross a small stream, climb steeply for about 100 yards, then bear left as you pop out on top.
Climb less steeply, with some rolling sections, for the about 2 miles. Somewhere in this section, the singletrack becomes a road....simply stay on the main road. The only turn to worry about comes when you bear right, headed back toward Sand Blvd on the same road you down rode at the beginning of Over Easy.
