Trail system can start from Channel lock or Bovine. Channel Lock is an easier climb than Bovine. This description and mileage starts at the Channel Lock trail, forest service boundary marker. Take Channel Lock trail up to the top (1.1) continue straight on trail 249 (1.49) miles. Trailhead sign for Sodbusters is on the left. Sodbusters continues until you hit a fork in the trail (2.75). Go right it will take you across a bridge and then start to climb again. This part is Cody's Loop. You will cross a jeep track but just continue straight on the single track. You will come to a 4 way trail junction about (3.93). Head left onto Shark's Belly. This will take you mostly downhill back to the top of Bovine (5.46). At the top of Bovine you can choose to head down it and back to the car or take a left and head back over to Channel Lock and back to the car. If you take Bovine you will hit the road at (6.74). Take a left on the road back to the Channel Lock parking area (7.42) Courtesy of Singletracks.com
Part of a larger trail network. This trail rides great both directions but gets a nod for the fun factor riding north to south. It feels secluded as the riding is all in the trees. The trail is smooth covered with pine needles making a nice carpet ride. A few man made bridges in the center help keep the trail out of the mud. When riding south to north, you'll experience a few more climbs with one steep pitch towards the end but nothing like the access trails of Bovine or Channel Lock. The trail is well maintained by local users.Courtesy of MTBProject.com

Never modify trail features. Ride trails when they're dry enough that you won't leave ruts. Speak up when you see others on the trail and always yield to hikers, horses, and others coming uphill. Always ride on the established trail.
