Steep switchback trail down to Englishman River. Ride in down-river direction only through some nice old growth forest. Intersects Pervertz Traverse and Aunty Gravity trails. What goes down must go up with a steep climb out but still worth the effort.

This trail is unsanctioned.

      A little bit brushy but still passable. Amazing trail, tight rooty XC style with punchy climbs.
