Old school twisty turny good times. Challenging when wet due to steep loam.

Trail starts mellow through tight trees, switchbacks steep, hitting a very steep S turn, leading into a steep bench run. Trail mellows out and turns pedally half way through.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

       Rode Mastadon Nov10th. Awesome conditions. Trail rocked. Earlier The big guy Eugene and I and a couple friends put some love to this trail and it really shows.
      Great old school trail ,which should not be ridden alone. Mr.Gee

       She is a nasty little one. Lots of roots, steeps and loam. Some of the tightest corners I have ridden in a while. Real old School. Worth a look!

       Loved it. Steep and you are rewarded with a fun section at the bottom.

       Needs a lot of work. Overgrown and washed out corners. Not worth the climb
