description: Trails are almost all 'single' or 'double' track on old wagon roads and mining ditches with a few miles of dirt and gravel Forest Service roads. Trail goes up and down between 2200 ft to 4200 ft. There also lots of 'flat' sections along with very moderate grades or short climbs. The LD is moderate. The Weaver Basin Express 50 is moderately difficult with elevation gain and lots of technical trail.
