Named for Jim LaFortune, the man largely responsible for developing Moscow Mountain's trail network, this trail is a series of about 18 switchbacks that gets you to the top of Moscow Mountain's main riding area. The whole thing is cleverly designed to make you feel like you're going to throw up and die, while somehow still delivering you at the top of the mountain alive, and ready to head down Nemesis.

The lower part of the trail connects to the Jump Trail, Private Lands and the Cabin Trail.

Access Info

Starts at the parking lot near the end of Warnick Rd., can be linked to the bottom of Private Lands either via the road, or singletrack.

Careful as there's a freshly down'd tree about halfway down. On another note, i saw 3 moose, a bull, a cow, and a calf munchin at the trailhead....

Rutted out corners and dust baths make an already hard climb even harder. Might be with skipping until after the rain.
