Cross-country climbing/descending trail between Nettleton Rd at the top and Davies Rd at the bottom. All natural tread sustainable bench-cut singletrack with grade reversals and switchbacks. Not a flow trail. Some awkward sections and corners with exposed stumps along the trailside. The trail is essentially a complete reroute/rebuild of the old (and now closed) unauthorized Hi-Lo trail, and its lower sections make multiple crossings over some of that trail's old lines.
The trail is named after Dave "Condor" Bateham, and funding for the construction of this trail was provided by the Condor 25K trail run in his memory.
OSU has officially marked this trail as not to be ridden when travel on the trail disturbs the trail tread.
Access the top of this trail from Nettleton Rd (Road 500) just to the west of Rd 5020. Access the bottom from Davies Rd (Road 580) at a turn in the road that overlooks the Cameron Tract.
