IMBA Smart is best accessed by climbing up Skookum or can also be descended to using Upper Power Smart (not recommended). It starts as a fast descent with moderate root drops and switchbacks and eventually turns into more of a x-country route with a few wide bridges and quick, moderate ups. Descend down onto the FSR below and head for Lower Powersmart or over to George’s crossing and choose your own adventure from there.
You need to ride this trail as soon as possible. It is in amazing shape but will soon be impacted by logging in the area, so we’ve been told.
