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.

      Just a bit of dead fall... Trail hasn't been ridden much due to the logging above I'm thinking. It rode well. I liked it.
