Narrow, sometimes rooty, singletrack that runs along the shoreline of Lake Russell. There are a few punchy climbs but overall this flows like older, hand-built singletrack.

Trail starts from the Nancytown Lake Trailhead (fee area). and can be ridden in either direction as a loop by incorporating a short section of asphalt.
