Original old school Clearwater mountain bike trail.
Call it techy - roots and rocks! Some nice forest and water features.
Worth a spin if you are looking for more riding in town.
Best ridden as a loop by pedaling up on logging road on left just past the airstrip / motocross track and returning on trail.
Not recommend in wet spring weather - wait until it dries out.
User maintained.
