The loggers came over the winter of 2015/16 and removed the entire forest that Kush runs through. The brave trail folk of the FTA restored the trail as soon as the loggers (and snow) had gone and it is now a fun flowy ride through a cut block. Flows into Kushier, Kushiest and Kushin.

Access Info

Start off the junction of Branch B and Ridgemont Road.

      The entry bridge across the ditch is half gone, but the trail is in good shape.
