Classic old school free ride trail with new modern features.
Some peddling but great flow.
Can be ridden all the way down to Naramata or cut off and back into The Mice.
It crosses several FSR so you can start at a few different places, most don't go all the way to top as it is a grunt pedal through clear cuts.

Access Info

Drive past entrance to the Reservoir and go another couple of km's until the parking/access on the left.
Currently there is logging going on above and around, trail head may be difficult to locate without a local.
Park at described location, start pedaling/pushing up the 2-track.
You will come to a point where the clear cut touches the road you are pushing up, veer right-ish up the single track that has brush coverage all around it. Keep humping up and cross a small 3ft wide creek. Ignore a trail on the left that has a "M" tag on a tree, thats just from a moto track. The entrance is just past the creek, has some beer cans on/in trees.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

Naramata river is raging making lower crossing (below KVR) very dangerous. There might usually be a path across, today it's a 15ft wide torrent.

 Why not? I thought it looked good and was going to hit it up when I'm there in a few weeks.

 Numerous fallen trees, severely overgrown sections, do not recommend.

 Made the mistake of trying to get in this from the KVR trail and almost killed ourselves sliding down beside the culvert. Trail at the bottom has a bunch of overgrown trees, lots unrideable. I recommend avoiding.
