This fun single track is a nice alternative to the fire road, and a good addition to a day of riding around Stewart Mountain. Great to know of if coming from Munn Rd towards Thetis, or vice versa. Couple rock gardens, steep rolls, and technical, rocky, up'n'overs. Enjoyable.

Not sure who built it or of any official trail name, but it is a fun time and deserves to be on trail forks.
