I'm assuming this trail was named in such a way.. because the trail builders actually found buried treasure! Cool!

definitely feels like a blue trail when instructing youth. Expect a few steeper pitches

Many of the switchback corners are developing shortcuts; these need to be blocked ASAP. There are ~2 larger blowdown trees that were cut back earlier this year, but only to the very edge of the trail, thus they are still a hazard to riders; bring a chainsaw and make short work of them.
