This is the main and most well used trail in this area. This doubletrack trail climbs up from River Road and descends into the Wolfe Creek Waste Disposal Site (Aka The Dump). This direction is recommended, as climbing up from the dump to the top of the mountain is extremely challenging with lots of loose rock combined with steep grades in sections. Several portions of the trail contain loose rock and roots.

      Long push up from either end before a long bomb down hill. Over all area is more of an atv playground than a MTb destination . Single track areas...
