Nice easy singletrack through the woods connecting the Lookout Trail to Wild Earp. Pops you out just above the switchbacks down to Cosens Bay. When descending the Lookout Trail, look for a small rock cairn that signals the start of this trail leading off to the left. Not sure what the official name of this trail is (or if it even has one).
