A mix of fast, flowy single track with several rocky sections. Volunteer trail work in 2021 - 2023 has repaired erosion damage and improved drainage along the trail. Much of the trail is suitable for a blue rider but a couple short steep, rough sections earn the trail its black rating. This trail is shared with hikers, please be courteous to all trail users.

Access Info

Bikes are not permitted on the access road where it runs through the Malcolm Knapp Research Forest, to Access the Eric Dunning trail, riders must use Incline Trail to access the Switchback/Eric Dunning Trail.
