One of the few "trails" up in this area that is singletrack-like. Many of the "trails" are wide road and troad bench cuts and corridors. Get ready to cross a lot of streams on this trail, some over bottom bracket heights and too deep and long to ride through at certain times of the year. The top mile is a blast, the middle is just ok, and the last 2 miles or so are not that great and nearly flat, and stream heavy. BE WARNED, when I road this I popped out on a gated private road that I did not know I entered or was on until after I hit the gate. My tracks might have missed a not-so-obvious turn near the end, or the only way out is indeed on a private gated road for which you can exit, but not enter.

 Just rode this trail today with my wife. What an epic trail. You bomb down alongside a creek that is gorgeous. Trail is a bit overgrown but we like that. A little tlc and this could be the best trail in the area.
