One of those trails. Either you love it or hate. Some of the best descents around followed but the most technical, exhausting climbs. Great views the whole way. Trail has been interrupted by logging roads but goes the whole way.

       Recommend avoiding both the access road and the trail. Looks like it was last maintained a long time ago. Put my foot through a sketchy bridge, part of the trail disappears in to a cut block and is gone so you have to climb over slash carrying your bike.

       Extremely slippery, and trail through cut block is marked with pink flagging tape but hard to find at first. If you ride the cut block section watch your derailleur!
