Super fun connector trail, but has been damaged by the rain in the winter of 16/17, leading to a lot of rain gullies, both skinny and wide, shallow and deep. The trail begs for you to ride it fast, but be cautious if it's your first time and always beware there could be hikers and horses coming up.

Disclaimer

Multi use trail including horses. Ride cautiously on weekends.

      Nice Dirt. Rain washed one of the wood steps pretty bad and it sticks out about 5 inches. it will send you flying if you hit it head on.
