3km of primarily downhill single track. Mix of rocky technical sections and fast, packed dirt. Crosses two logging roads. One creek crossing. Not a heavily used trail, so can be littered with debris and blow down, depending on time of year. This trail is used my motos frequently.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

      There is a trail through the clear cut. It's marked by a ribbon on a log.

      This trail is impassable about 1/3 of the way down due to logging. Found remnants of it lower in the cut block but highly recommend staying away.
