Access Info

There is a big parking / turn-around / hunter's camp at the start of the trail. A couple of paths lead from this area, but choose the route that heads due south, and of course use Trailforks!

      Overgrown in places making it difficult to see trail in spots. Generally ridable & fun.

      As of mid July, all downed trees have been cleared. Trail is a little brushy, but is clear and ridable from end to end.

      At least 20 or more large blow down logs exist in the lower part. Not recommended until cleared.

       This trail is abandoned and should be removed. There were 50-100 big burned trees to scrap around!

       Thanks for the comment. This is a user built and maintained trail and not sanctioned or legal. I do know that volunteers cut it out last year. Not uncommon to cut 50+ trees annually on trails that have had burns, etc.
