You could probably go as far as calling this trail an Epic. The trail beings with rocky/rooty terrain at a respectable grade, with some tricky tech moves over the roots in some areas. Things flatten out a bit around half way through, where you enter the mega-loam zone surrounded by green moss. We rode late September in the pouring rain, which I wouldn't recommend. Most of the wood has chicken wire, but everything else is very slippery. When you finish the trail, turn right instead of cutting through the farmers field.

Access Info

A short hike a bike up the ski run leads to a small plateau, with the trail dropping in riders right. There is a pretty well defined 4x4 track that will take you right to the trailhead.
