This trail connects Orofino Gulch to the top of the Wakina Sky road, providing more direct access from the Rodney Ridge area to the Wakina Sky area. There are a few tight and steep switchbacks at the bottom, but the climb eases up afterwards.

Access Info

West side of Orofino Gulch, just downhill from the TR trailhead on the Waterline side of the road.

       I rode this from the ridge down the south/east side of the trail. THIS is how trail should be built. Wonderful job to Evan I guess. Fast and fun, with great line of sight for all sharp corners.
