Bushwhack departs from the SE end of the Advanced Access Trail. Riders climb a tall qualifying A-frame skinny and them immediately make a right into a series of many, testy rollers (mining spoils). After passing near a pond on the right the trail continues over more small rollers and passes between two skinny trees--barely the width of many handlebars. After crossing some rock gardens and rounding a turn to the left, the trail enters into a taxing switchback climb that crosses two skinny bridges. The singletrack then twists through thick foliage and riders eventually arrive at a short but steep climb. After the peak, the path becomes a series of fast descents, that lead to some switchbacks. The trail ends with a tight bermed turn to the right and a wooden exit feature that finishes at Advanced Access Trail.

       Not gonna lie... I hate climbs... so some of this trail and I do NOT get along. But the rest is worth the climb! Well, ALL the climbs. This is a GREAT workout trail...

       Because the trail incorporates strip-mining spoils, there's really nothing else like this (except maybe Saw Wee See in IL which is also a former mine). The first, lower part of the trail is a bucking bronco with all of these little hills. Then there's a tough climb and you have to get aligned right after a turn so you can get over a skinny on the uphill. Once the climbing is done, there's some way fun descending. Oh, and that qualifier A-frame skinny at the beginning actually has a different angle on the up than the down. It is so not a straight line!
