Fun trail system that is cut into the rolling hill side. There is a water crossing about 2 miles in with no bridge. The trail is a little over grown but is easy to follow. There is no obstacles to worry about.

Access Info

       Nice ride through a 'working' pasture. Fun to ride to the top of the butte.
