Old park road that took you to the Lion's Den area of Ritter. The top end is singletrack, dropping down to the patchy asphalt, where you will find a couple of logs to hop over. Very fast. Swoops around the tennis courts at the bottom.

Access Info

Either climb this trail from the bottom, or take one of the other trails to connect to it. The road at the top is private, but the woods within this valley (bounded by the fence along the road) are park land.

      Two large trees down at but they can be climbed over fairly easily. There's a reroute around a large snarl on the road.

      Several large trees at the bottom, but there's a bypass. Several small trees on the ground that can be ridden over with a bit of finesse.

      Tons of trees down, especially just behind the tennis courts where there are several large ones down.
