This single track trail is for advanced riders only. Helmets are required. The trail twists and turns as it follows steep ravines cut into ancient shell deposits from the Tertiary Period when the entire area was under a shallow sea. This environment is unique to the region. The trail is steep and narrow in places and requires advanced riding skills. Riders should be mindful of overhanging obstacles, walk their bikes in some places and remain alert for other bikers. Riders should familiarize themselves with trail etiquette and rules of the road before attempting the trail.

 Trail is hard to follow, heavy leaf cover, needs to be blown off or more bike traffic.
