The next valley over from Marshall, and another place to ride if you are up on the new trails. Old road that has grown into a single track in places but is kept fairly clear of downfall. Not bad to climb, and maybe more fun than descending back down the main road above Marshall.

Access Info

The bottom section comes out right near the bottom of the access road to the top of Marshall. The top is a little trickier, you can continue past the ski hill for awhile on the road and then have to climb up to the next road up on foot. It is likely possible to get here from the top of the ski hill if you continue above the new trails.
