The optional entrance trail to the start of HammerFest. Rough and rooty, twisty and bumpy. A good way to warm up for the remainder of your ride. No Bones about it.

This trail is unsanctioned.

       Still a great little trail, it has a bit of sentimental value to me because it was the first hammerfest trail my bike flew through. Great soil conditions right now, at least on this one. No repairs needed.
