Reworked in June 2020, post-logging. A fun flowy trail with a few steeper sections, a couple of easy switchbacks. On the upper section there are a few jumps and features (all have roll-over and ride-around options). A few little man-made drops and a hip jump on the way down. Kicks you out on Ridgemont Road.

When it was a deep, dark forest you never realised you were on a ridge, but you now get amazing 360 views. The old cabin is still there.

Some will still want to climb it, but it is typically ridden down from the Kids Stuff junction.

Access Info

You can access the upper end of this trail from the junction with Kids Stuff.

       Heads up for a downed tree on Eric’s Trail, just above the intersection with Roxy Roller. The tree is high enough to hit an adult in the neck/head if they are standing on their pedals!
