This trail skirts around the southern base of Mt. Erie. Lots of tight rock sections, rock gardens, tight steep switchbacks and brutal punchy climbs make this trail a fun challenge for skilled riders - expect to push your bike here and there, but trail is mostly rideable.

      Good shape. No trees on the trail. I rode it opposite of what trialforks shows... punchy climbs make it a challenge. More technical on the Western...
