A long, grassy old road, running just below the parkway. Intersects four other trails for loop options. High elevation, dense northern hardwoods and patches of spruce-fir forest. Rolling hills and nothing technical. Part of the Douglas Falls and Coleman Boundary Grand Tour best rides when combined with the Bear Pen trail.
