Yellow blazed singletrack, dryer preferred route vs lower Lakeshore trail in wet season. Has technical features. Heading Northeast it is downhill with some steep drops. From the top it is accessible off Kennedy Creek near the Lee Hill intersection. From the bottom off Cole Road. A pretty serious techy climb from Cole Road- take the challenge. Named after early settler / founder in the area Everett Basset
