Old-school bench-cut multiuse singletrack that descends off the Marys Peak paved lot down to the gate at Woods Creek Rd. Lots of sidehill exposure, tight switchbacks, roots, and deadfall. Open to bikes from late spring through early fall. Many technical features and dynamic changes to the trail every year due to the exposure atop this peak to winter storms, snow, and falling trees.

A number of trees down throughout the trail from this winter so plan on a little extra time and some notable carry overs with your bike.

Dry. There are still about 6 trees down on the trail, other than that it is riding good.
