Popular trail near town that provides some good cardio, is mostly buff and often wide singletrack. There are some spots of embedded rough rocks, and narrow navigating through the pine trees. Rocks and some exposure can make this trail difficult for beginner riders.

Disclaimer

Trail closed to bikes on Wednesday and Saturdays. Please ride the posted direction.

      When riding CW there was one feature that was significantly harder than the rest. It has been "tamed" - we think by removing one of the rocks?...
