At 6.9km to the trailhead this lengthy push is rewarded with super loamy, natural singletrack. Narrow moderately steep trail with a long log ride near the start(can be walked). The trail contains a few technical tight switchbacks mid trail. the Den be connected to repo mid trail or to 2 cents after a short climb up the road at the end.

      Many trees down. I wouldnt consider it worth it to hike up in its current state.

       I found that the climb to this trail was not as obvious as the map makes it seem. You need to turn off the access road and climb the dirt bike trail "stairway to heaven" to reach the trailhead. It is marked at the top of the descent

       Hey Dan thanks for trekking up there with me. Glad we found it. Next time up I might take some signage with me and post it properly
