Cakewalk was build as a easier alternative to the other downhill trails, but don’t let the name fool you. The trail is old, wet, rooty, rocky and has not seen very much maintenance. This is a downhill trail with a few optional challenges if you know where to look. Cakewalk has become a popular way to access Full Nelson.

 Lots of fun sections, with utter crap in between. Could be a great trail with a bit of love.

 Few fun parts but trail needs desperate love. So many parts where the trail disappears due to erosion. In other parts the creek washed everything away. It could really use some work done on it.
