Seasonal Use Only. Beautiful scenery, fun trail. Starts in Picklesimer Fields...flat, grassy area with crystal clean streamside riding, then a fast, gradual climb, and then a stiff, technical climb up to Butter Gap. Also makes a great downhill from the gap. Passes a waterfall. Part of Picklesimer Fields Best Ride.

It's butter gap, there is always going to be a little mud. There is a tree down still about halfway down the trail, but it's possible to roll over it.

 Fun trail with many roots. They aren't huge but pretty rough on the downhill (on a low travel hardtail) at high speeds
