We went in the evening in winter and only saw one biker. (see map below for route) Headed counterclockwise, starting straight along paved path about 5-10 min until it turns into a 4 wheel road. Followed it to the left, then right up to the ridge. For a ridge view, follow 4 wheel drive road until it hits the first "summit", then head back left and switchback on the Big Thunder trail and then rt on Ridgeline straight until it turns left and follow trails down to the bike park and parking lot.
