From Rd 300 to the intersection with Kents, Phil’s trail is a 2-way trail. Above FS Road 300 – Upper Phil’s (Helipad) gets much more challenging.
Below the intersection with Kent’s, Phil’s is 1-way down to the trailhead. The trail is mellow and fairly flat till Heater Rock. Below this the trail includes a few rocky sections to punch through (rated blue). It’s one of the more enjoyable downhill sections of trail in Phil’s complex – but things are still fairly moderate.
Below the famous “Chicken” the trail is very mellow with just 1 rocky notch about half way down (rated green). There is a boulder gap you can ride up and over at this point which will save you some time (not for the novice!).
