Cracked Patella- Sounds alot worse than it actually is. CP is actually an awesome little ride, due to it being technical but very forgiving, basically flat with a slight incline towards the NE, plus its proximity to Ross Rd and a large selection of other trails in the Brackendale Forest (Wood Lot 26/27). This is a great trail to practice ones technical abilities (roots, rocks and lines) and still have a ton of fun, whether novice or expert. The roots and rocks are continuous with a small break in the middle of the trail as one rides through an old cut block. Its narrow in most parts (single track) but opens up in sections as one goes through parts of the Disc Golf Course. A true gem in the Brackendale Trail system and very family friendly. The "Fun Factor" of this trail is HIGH.

Access Info

Trail Head is on Ross Road, across from the church. One can also enter from the opposite end: Hydro Line Road (Livewire)

 The trail description of roots & rocks sounded good, but I think it's just a gravel path these days.

 Not so sure about it being a 'gravel path', these days. I agree if we are talking about the old cut block, but across from the church, the roots seem to be getting more exposed.
I ride this trail daily.

 Does the trail you're riding correspond with where the trail is located on Trail Forks? I wonder where I went wrong.

 Hi blackcombterry: Hope all is well. Yes, the trail on T/F corresponds to the actual trail. I didn't collect the 'track' for the trail, just gave the description.
There are a couple of trails in the area that are gravel. Examples would be Ray Peters and Live Wire. Happy riding
