Middle option for climbing and descending. Other shorter options exist as well as alternate descents through the lower sections of the trail system.

A paved road climb with 1000ft of elevation gain over about 3.5 miles. Then a roughly 3.5-mile descent back to the parking lot via Highballer and Springboard.

 Yes, a slog to the top, but what a blast. Grinning ear to ear the whole way down. Mud in my teeth!

      Minor moisture and one tree down 20-24 inch with dangerous leaner. I hoped through the larger rootwad because I’m so damn tall Can’t wait to get back to working on trails because the extra use will start to show soon. Please donate and support team dirt .
