Short fun trail that is easy to ride for anyone but with good undulations and berms and speed to make it fun for advanced riders as well. There are no difficult features but a fast rider will find bump jumps and transitions to jump and play around on. Riding north to south is the fast direction and will allow good speed to be carried despite very little elevation drop. Riding south to north requires pedalling but is easy with no sustained or steep climbs.

Access Info

Turn of the main road at the Cutler Flats sign. Follow the road and keep left at the fork until you come to the large unpaved parking lot on your left hand side. The trail spurs off of Mule Ear just a few yard off of the dirt road.

       Great fast ride north to south. I do believe it needs to be a one way track. Headed south to north watch out for fast riders coming down . A lot of blind corners that could have turned out bad for our riders.
