Great alternative to the normal Kirkman Hollow (012) trail. Very fun luge/bobsled section. Cuts off about half of the super-steep portion of Kirkman, and replaces it with a more gradual, flowy, grade. Easily one of the best downhills in Hobble Creek area.

Access Info

Look for small spur to the right as you are heading up the super-steep portion of Kirkman. The small spur immediately becomes a well-traveled trail as it crosses through a gully. From the top, this trail descends to the west from the Mapleton Ridge Trail (013), just before the ridge trail enters a fir forest.

      Clear, fun, and some light dust build up from dirt bikes, but in good condition all the way.

      Clear and dry almost all the way to the top, but some snow at the very last climb will keep you from getting all the way.

       A really fun downhill, that I think I like more than the normal Kirkman trail.
