Built by trials moto riders, you will understand the advantage of a throttle when taking this trail on. Worth the effort, but not a great ride. Views are exceptional, and flowers abound in season. Named for the burn that cleared much of the forest in 2009, be prepared for blowdown along the route, a folding saw can be helpful. Frankly - I'd rather walk this than ride it - or use a kick start. You be the judge.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

       I'm glad i went in this trail strictly for the view. However there is no riding it as the 2009 wildfire killed trees have come down across the trail in enough places that you cant ride more than 15m at a time. Also confirm this was designed for motorbikes not mountain bikes. Great views all through the trail. Walk it instead.
