This is a neighborhood connector trail that runs from the bottom of Scott Chair to the Page Meadows trail system. It is mostly a decommissioned logging road. Best ridden from top to bottom. The top 1/3 mile is steep, rocky and loose (unrideable uphill). Most of the trail (minus the top 1/3 mile) is fairly well maintained by people in the neighborhood as a multi-use trail and is an easy ride in either direction. There are a number of spurs that drop into the neighborhood street and cul-de-sacs.
This isn't a destination trail but something to keep in mind if you are in the neighborhood.
Note- finding the upper entrance can be tricky. It's right next to the lift maintenance bridge near the bottom of Scott Chair. Look for a faint trail on the southeast side of the bridge. Ski area maintenance obscured the entrance a bit. opens up quickly.
