This is the trail to teach your 8 year old to ride singletrack It has flow uphill and down. No berms so learn to corner! This excellent access trail leaves you wanting to climb it to access other trails but when you near the top, it makes you want to spin around and take a DH lap! Fun and fast!

      Ok. I ride all over the NW and I think this could be one of the best. Two miles of fun in either direction. Ride it uphill fast for a test of lungs and legs. Downhill for some of the best chances to actually use the tread on the side of your tires. Yes, not all trails have berms... Rip it DH and stay centered over your bike, pedal like mad and don’t touch the brakes. Smiles oddly appear.
