One of the best trails in the area. This hard packed dirt single track trail, has some fun and fast switchbacks, some challenging climbs, and some fast and tight sections through the hardwoods. You have to work for it, but there's some great XC flow to be had.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

      Fallen tree appears to be gone. Conditions were very good today despite rain the previous night.

      Watch for a fallen tree across the trail near the beginning. It’s right where you start to drop into the first fast flowy switchback section....
