Tight single track with some fun technical climbing turns with some roots. Not a lot of granite unlike rest of Whopper trail system.

Please don't ride it when it's too wet, as it's far too easy to damage this trail when it's soggy out.

Access Info

Normally this trail is accessed through Whopper trail system and taking the fire road from power lines. Alternatively, this trail can be reached from Rails to Trails entrance near Coke Plant in Lakeside.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
