Classic or old-school narrow single track with some roots and tight corners as it winds through the forest. The upper section starts by descending old hand-built singletrack that traverses the ridgeline above Springboard, with several switchbacks and mildly insloped corners. The trail joins Springboard briefly in the middle, and then resumes downhill to the right with a newer machine-built section that has long swooping berms. Finally the bottom section is a nearly-flat traverse back to the parking lot, passing the bottom of Springboard along the way just before a bridge.

The entire trail is intended for climbing or descending.

Access Info

Access from the parking lot at Fall Creek Rd by taking the gravel path across the bridge, and staying left at the intersection with the very bottom of Springboard trail. Also intersects Springboard at approximately the halfway point. The top of the trail ends at a landing from which riders can resume on Bailout or a short gravel tie road.
