The trailhead drops off the Madone Trail but is hard to spot from above, look around and you will find it. The first third of the trail winds down through the trees with steep and loose sections but nothing that can't be rolled then finishes with a roller coaster gulley section. The bottom section of the trail is technical single track that winds above and across the creek bed several times. There is one major tree down that requires a dismount but the rest of the creek section is ridable (when dry) with some tech skills. I wouldn't attempt this trail after any rain or late in winter when the creek is running.

 the bottom portion of this so-called trail is a creek bed with numerous fallen trees, drop-offs into giant rocks, and other obstacles requiring some rather unpleasant Hike-a-Bike. There really isn't more than 30 yards at a stretch of ride-able trail.

 The creek bed is completely dry and ridable right now. One major downed tree to lift your bike over and a couple of technical rock sections that will test your old school skills. This trail may not be for everyone, but I think it is cool and could use a few more people riding it to clear some of the leaf litter.
