Trail The Rut
This is a sweet little trail and it can be fun for all levels of riders. It can also be dangerous if you do not know your abilities or look ahead at the terrain. Well banked corners, small to medium drops and rutted out sections all make it challenging and fun. I have personally witnessed two broken collar bones on this short section of trail. We use to refer to it as clavicle hill. If your front tire drops in the rut in the wrong spot going OTB may be the result. Have fun and use a bell or yell around the corners. Unsuspecting hikers or downed bikers will appreciate the warning.

This trail is a blast… my only complaint is that it’s not long enough. This is a must try!

Trail Blue Ribbon
Not a black diamond. Can someone fix the rating? Blue or green would be appropriate.
