Cross-country climbing/descending trail between Vineyard Mountain at the top and the 580 Rd. 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. Past Davies Rd it is more up-and-down, while below Nettleton Rd (and heading towards Davies) it is mostly downhill.
The trail started as a complete reroute/rebuild of the old (and now closed) unauthorized Hi-Lo trail, with its lower sections make multiple crossings over some of that trail's old lines. It is has now been extended is part of a continuous singletrack route between the Powderhouse and Lewisburg Saddle, with a long term plan to be rideable all the way to Peavy Arboretum.
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 one end of this trail from Nettleton Rd (Road 500) just where it meets Road 5010. The trail crosses Nettleton Rd and Davies Rd before reaching its other end at Road 582.
