      Enter to right of 14726 Carnegie Rd for best acess and a fun ride. Difficulty of trails changes drastically, first ride will have most riders...

      Small tree down across trail, can ride over or around. It is approximately 12 inches in diameter and could be removed with a large hand saw.

       Flume is fun, singletrack dirt in pretty good shape ( although poison oak is present in a number of areas that is nearly unavoidable while riding). Trail markers are few and easy to miss posted up on tree trunks. Use Trail Forks for best chance of staying on desired trail. Degree of difficulty between trails is significant and there are a number of small off-shoot trails not on maps. Riding a couple times to learn will increase fun, by lessening the need to keep stopping for map checks. Strongly suggest parking, entering/exiting this trail system using the un-nammed private trail to the right of 14726 Carnegie Rd, much better access than using Colter Way.
