This once sandy, cupped out trail has been rerouted to form a much more progressive trail and a much finer singletrack version of its former self. From the Pungy Stick Trail #925 and Whoop-Di-Dos intersection, it heads west all the way to Haul Road where you can connect with Lookout Trail #926. The trail now features alternate lines, as well as a section with big rollers, jumps, and berms. Connect it with other recently reworked trails in the area, like Pungy, Lookout Trail #926, Re-Root #927, and Sugar Magnolia #926 to form a short loop near Nederland that contains about everything a mountain biker could ask for. Or connect it with Hobbit 1 #927, Hobbit 2 #927, and Hobbit 3 #927, or even School Bus #929 to form a longer ride that goes further afield.

This once straight-as-an-arrow shot through the aspens was demolished during logging operations when it was used as a skid road to remove felled trees. The recent rerouting conducted by the Boulder Mountainbike Alliance and Contour Logic fixed this mess and added a whole lot of fun to boot. This new trail represents just part of phase 1 of the Magnolia Non-motorized Trails Project that will see a lot of new trails, rerouting of old broken down trails, and reclamation of some trails as determined by the USFS Boulder Ranger District, so expect to see more good things happening in the area.
