Ride clockwise. There are no signs and the trailhead is kind of secluded, but it is to the right of the right-most two track if you're starting at the parking lot.

Very tight singletrack, meanders through the lush woods of the park. A few very small dirt mounds make for jumps and the trail generally is laid out playfully, but there are plenty of off-camber corners and some repetitive sections. There are no technical features, the intermediate rating is simply because of the tightness of the trail. Single direction only.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
