Straight run North-South. Bumpy, level till you climb out at the gravel cut on the north exit point. Starts as an easy ride in spring becomes an overgrown hell towards the mid August timeframe.

Deet advised as the personal trainers (mosquitoes) are thick and persistent from late June onwards.

Access Info

Access from the corner of the gravel cut at the North end or from the middle of the sand bowl at the South end.

      Overgrown. Almost at the point where it is impossible to find. Trailforks path does not align with GPS track. Waste of effort.
