This more difficult 3.9 mile trail is in the northern portion of the Barlow Ranger District. The trail is popular for mountain biking and the trail goes through several small, open meadows and follows the Eightmile Creek. It is a primitive single track trail with some steep grades. Lots of cool sections with steep, slalom like berms that are a blast coming down The steepest sections are mostly near the top of the trail. Trail connects with Fifteenmile Trail. Combine this with a long climb up Cooks Meadow to Lookout mountain then down Lookout to Knebal Springs to Super Connector for an all day epic. Sections of this trail are maintained by the 44 Trails Association.

      One tree down. Could probably get it with a longer hand saw, but it’s sitting pretty high so be careful!
