Recently reworked, Dirt Merchant starts out with a drop-in that is somewhat more difficult than the one on upper A-line. Both sections of the trail were recently re-worked though the lower section is much more difficult. Lots of steps up that have alternate hip landings and some drops that are 3-5 ft. There’s a big hip near then end too, and some pretty big drops. Harder than Fade to Black for sure. There is also a river gap at the end of the trail!

Access Info

Turn right after coming off the Fitz chair and keep going straight until you reach the ending of Freight Train. Trail will be beside it.
