Bidirectional trail but best as a downhill trail from the top of Ken Wood. Very challenging climbing riding the trail uphill. A somewhat flowy trail strewn with small boulder features,steep roller, rock gardens, and a fun 60ft elevated log ride. The log height can be intimidating but is so wide and flat that it is just a mental challenge. Keep an eye out about a quarter mi in from the East (top) end of the trail - on the left.

The trail runs between the top of Ken Wood, rejoining Ken Wood toward the bottom. Uphill is a bear but less of a challenge than the west to east climb on Ken Wood.

Legend has it that the builder built the trail while recovering from a broken bone in one hand, so it was built using one arm - One armed-bandit - or Bandit for short.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

Thin leaf cover in many areas. Manageable but adding to technical challenge.
