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.

 Rode today August 11 and it was in terrible shape almost to the point of not being rideable. Tons of downed trees and heavy storm damage. Wasn’t worth the massive climb and needs lots of maintenanace before I’ll consider riding it again.
