Very faint trail that offers a quiet alternative to the 4WD route popular with the quad crowd. Great way to connect over to the Willow Springs connecter. Mostly a black diamond because of navigation skills needed when things are overgrown. Use your gps Please keep the entrance hidden so the motorheads don't get in here.

      This would be a beautiful place to build a trail one day. There isn't one there we found 3 rock carins constantly had to look at GPS.
