Official multi-use bidirectional gravel trail. The trail is open year-round to bikes as well as equestrian and pedestrian traffic. Bikes are required by OSU to yield to all other users.

Kind of steep, kind of fast, all descending, dumping you out onto a much longer road descent into the Soap Creek valley.

Access Info

Access the top of this trail from Ridge Trail. Access the bottom from a dead-end at the top of Road 810.
