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.

      Tidied up a few of the bad spots. Still rough and loose overall.

      Being loved to death. Too many riders and too much rain. Switchbacks blown out, general erosion, corners being cut to avoid the holes.

      Need some work done. Erosion of soil has left some baby heads exposed and pits at the bottom of drops.

      Lots of erosion on the trail, boulders sticking out where they shouldn’t be, hard to keep flow.

       Awesome trail, some steep and techy parts but also alot of really nice flow and LOTS of tight corners. Great front break and cornering practice and honestly cant wait to ride it again!

       The start of the trail is a lot of fun why so many switchbacks? That's just a waste of terrain.

       I rode this trail a lot before I saw the optional line just before the log ride. I recommend you keep your eye out for it!

       Tight switchbacks. Good trail to learn bike control on and is a pretty chill trail excluding the log ride.

       How this is still rated a black diamond is beyond me. The endless switchbacks are a waste of good vertical that the old trail had in spades.

       This trail had some REALLy tight berms that felt like they were dug into the ground
      the dirt walls go up near your shoulders at some parts
