What used to be a steep, trenched trail has been completely rerouted by Ol' Man Pete to create an intermediate trail easily accessed off the third switchback. Tight, twisty turns flow at you one after the other. Optional wood roll downs and even a log ride at the end offers a little extra to the advanced rider. So many turns it'll make you dizzy!

Access Info

Accessed from the 3rd switchback on Mountain Hwy or Crinkum Crankum. It ends at the cedar Trail.

TEMPORARY! The NSMBA Trail Crew has moved a great amount of dirt on Kirkford today. We are requesting that a few days of rest are observed so...

reporter Tree down near the start of the trail, just after where it heads back into the forest from the 3rd switchback. About 10” in diameter.
