The trail starts off of Summit Loop by going through the cattle fence gate (close the gate behind you if it was closed when you got there). The trail is unmarked and follows the faint singletrack route up to a knoll. This is where the fun, technical descent begins. The trail connects at the bottom to Haunted Forest Trail. It is not recommended to ride in the opposite direction (uphill).

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

      Hiked through the whole trail last night, clear and dry! One wood feature is damaged up top, but you can ride right by it!

      Trail is completely clear as of 10/19/17, with a little snow at the bottom. Don't ride it if you're not up to it. This is NOT an XC trail like...

       Totally overgrown and not maintained. I'm sure it was fun at one point but not much of a trail anymore. Tons of trees down
