Compared to other new singletrack in the Mission Creek area, this trail is just slightly more old-school. It has a narrower tread, tighter trees, fewer berms, occasional rock in the middle of the trail, and some flat/off-camber turns. This trail has a fantastic deep-woods feel to it.

In total, this trail is nearly miles and the north end is roughly 300' higher (elevation) than the south end. Most of the elevation change occurs in the southern half of the trail, with the northern half feeling flatter.

The southern end contains numerous sensational hairpins where the trail skirts out, traversing along a steep hillside, to the head of a ridge line only to whip the rider nearly 180° and back along the next steep hillside.

From end to end, this trail flows easily along, bringing the rider from mature stands of White Pines, Hemlocks, and Cedars, and through big leafy Birch and Aspen groves. You'd never have a clue that you're within a city!
