Winter seasonal closure for this BLM land is Dec. 1st through April 15th.

Description

Sweet Mother can be taken in both directions. Assuming you accessed the top of Sweet Mother by climbing Crimson Ride, take a left and head west on a doubletrack. Soon, the doubletrack turns into a singletrack and begins working its way downhill with a series of twists and turns.

The trail is generally smooth, but there are a few rocky sections where you'll want to watch your footing. There are also a few short climbs towards the end of the trail that will keep your heart rate elevated.

When you arrive back at the intersection with Half Time, take a right to access Zeni's Trail or take a left to access Ole' Roller. You can also take a left and climb Crimson Ride again to hike Jasper and create a longer experience.
