Hand and machine-built extension of Lawler. Opened in 2017, this extension removes the old long gravel road descent with a largely flow trail feel with some optional features along the sides of the trail.

Access Info

Access the top of this trail from Lawler, by staying to the left after the gravel road slalom section. The bottom dumps out onto the road near a bridge and the start of South Willamette trail, making it possible to ride singletrack all the way back to the Hardesty portal.

       Poorly laid out grades and badly designed corners. Feels like it climbs as much as it descends.
