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.

      Trail is clear and dry. This is a VERY STEEP trail with technical sharp corners. Good balance is required to get down this trail.

       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
