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, Ride at your own Risk!
