From the Sugarloaf Mountain Bike Area parking lot head up the sledding hill and into the woods on the right. You'll come to a four-way intersection with Sugarloaf XC Ski trails, make a slight left and start your descent off the backside of the mountain. You'll pass the Kim Trail on your right and continue left down the winding singletrack. Eventually, you'll end up on a wider section of trail that is steep, fast, and rocky. After that it's just a short ride to the merge point.

This trail provides a good climb if you're headed from town to McCune Trail, Kim Trail or Canyons Edge Loop . It's far more interesting than continuing on the front side of the Sugarloaf Trail.

The trail is rocky, with a few ledges, and some good twisty stuff at the top.
