This trail climbs steeply from Pidherny road (hence the black climb difficulty). For an improved climbing experience, take the new Climb-It trail (starts in same area). Once you attain the ridge, the trail is moderate rolling singletrack. This trail takes you to Back Door, Screefer, Pulaski and Sidebar.

Access Info

Start from the red gate on Pidherny road, and start climbing! The trail is difficult to find since they logged the dead pine near the gate, but it's still there for the most part.
