This Trail is generally ridden from north to south starting in Ranch Camp/Backyard Bar's Parking lot finishing at start of the Cady Hill Road climb. This trail also connects into Bridgey Trail as well as Zog's Trail.

This trail starts up a section of gravel singletrack which gives way to short but steep doubletrack. Keep ascending the doubletrack until it turns into singletrack. At the first intersection go left for the tougher section or right for the opt-out. After these trail converge, a short, steep climb will bring you under a powerline. At this point, the the trail meets up with Bridgey by bearing right. Bear left and you'll stay on Charlie's.

The next section of trail takes a quick down then up, then splits again with the opt-out again on the right. Smoke rock is a short technical uphill on mossy boulder on the left. When the trails meet back up you are greeted with a fast, flowy descent down to the Substation. There you'll intersect Cady Hill Road.
