From the ruins of the logging over the winter of 2015/16, comes a new clear cut with Kushin running through it. We might curse the loggers, but actually the views are pretty awesome now...Cruisy blue ride that hooks onto the end of the Kushes. Ride it down to the road and it crosses over on to Loose Change and Coal Disco back to town.

Access Info

Look for the Kushin sign as you head down Kushier towards the Ridgemont Road.
