Official multi-use bidirectional gravel trail. The trail is open year-round to bikes as well as equestrian and pedestrian traffic. Bikes are required by OSU to yield to all other users. Be aware of other trail users; this is one of the most popular trails at the Oak Creek trailhead due to its short length and easy access for anyone wanting a short visit to the forest.
Very easy and short descent from Road 6021 down to just outside the Oak Creek gate. It does have a bridge but it's an easy and wide bridge with railing.
Access the top of this trail from Road 6021. Access the bottom of this trail from the parking lot at the Oak Creek gate.
