Flowing single trail with a few surprises. The track has been modified to allow travel in both directions. Generally riders preferred a clockwise direction. In The Dog has a number of technical features including small rocky sections. One of which is verging on Black Diamond difficulty. There are also a number of valley crossings three are rocky & the forth is a skinny bridge. The rest of the trail is easy to ride with long sweeping corners & gradual undulations.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

      Maintenance work on one of the fire road crossings blocking the trail completely, can go around but ruins the flow.
