This trail is a link between Kushier (altho' the sign says Kush) and Coal Discovery. It used to be longer, but the upper section has been affected by logging and runs through an area closed for summer of 2019. It's either a steep downhill or a heinous uphill grunt - but at least it's short. If you're gonna climb it then you'd better be more Jack Burton than Joe Dirt.

Access Info

Right next to the junction of R Trail and Ridgemont Road.
