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.

      Lots of puddles ranging from small to large, I would not recommend hitting the wooden features.
