Difficult to see the start of the trail, it's easier to see if your on the climb of the west cherry street cutoff but it is near the top of that trail. The trail starts off with a short, punchy, and technical climb then opens up to a ridge with a beautiful view over looking Ashley reservoir and Westfield. Don't be discouraged by the slow going rock gardens at the start, after you pass the ridge you will be greeted by fast and flowing single track with a few small log jumps. The trail is very easy to session multiple times within an hour or two given that its only about 1/3 of a mile long with the climb being a little shorter.

Disclaimer

Its not great when ridden wet as the rocks are a little slippery but the single tracks is still just as fun
