This is an easy trail with mild elevation gain from East to West. Classic, Northwest singletrack through mostly deciduous forest until you get toward the Eastern end, which was clearcut in 2019. Pretty smooth and featureless. Terminates to the East where it meets the Samish Crest trail in a large clearcut with a view of Bellingham Bay. Great location to catch a sunset. Fast and fun heading downhill, from West to East. For years, the key identifying feature of this trail was a burned-out shell of a car near the Eastern end. It's still barely visible, half buried under a pile of slash from the recent logging activity.
