Route takes you up and over the Broken Shield trail and then back along the backside of that "mountain" on the return trip back to the start of the route. In spots both up and down there is a significant amount of loose rock combined with steep grades that make climbing challenging at times. Recommended route is over the mountain towards the dump, as the climb up out of the dump is very challenging with grades exceeding 30% combined with loose rock in sections.

An ATV trail that appears to be used on one side more than the other by either mountain bikers or dirt bikers. The entire trail was rideable, but would be some very muddy sections during wet periods. Some very steep climbs as the trail approaches Broken Shield, but strong riders will be able to make them.
