This is a loop trail off of the South Main trail. It has some punch climbs, small downhill sections and some flowy downhill sections. It has smooth sections, small rock gardens and the typical roots of the area. The trail gets its name from a piece of carpet put down on the trail on a specific climbing section and has been there for many years.
