This trail section is in between the East and West loops on the North side of the river. It is a tight & twisty trail with some small hills that can be used to access the West loop without having to go back on the East loop. It takes you to Morton-Taylor road and across from the entrance of the West loop. Also, shortly after passing east through the ITC powerline corridor and before making a sharp left, there is a 1/2 mile extention that contains some more tight & twisty stuff with 4 more log piles. (look for the sign) Coming summer of 2013 - a new skills section called "Playland" with elevated wooden ladder bridges and a short pump track.
