Cross-country style singletrack that climbs into a recent white oak habitat restoration thinned section of forest before winding its way down the opposite side of the ridge. Several rock gardens and brief bursts of climbing on the way down the hill.

OSU has officially marked this trail as not to be ridden when travel on the trail disturbs the trail tread.
