A good trail to get newer riders hooked on single track, yet fun enough to keep you coming back. Just under 6 miles round trip. Great way to enter the MdO trail network to do larger loops or through rides.

Lower 1/3 can be quite loose and sandy in summer months. Upper 1/3 has some rocks and moments of exposure that might be uncomfortable to very new or inexperienced riders.

Access Info

Well marked trailhead just north of Spooners Cove. If you see the beach and white house, turn around.
