A loose and fast trail with a couple of quick turns through the woods. The sections between the lot and access road are wide, mostly loose-over-hard with a small amount of baseball sized rocks strewn about and some roots here and there. This eastern section of trail could really be considered "Green" or "Easy". The section of trail west of the access road the trail climbs over a small rise and connects with Lookout Trail. This section is significantly more chunky with some larger boulders and step downs. If you're only interested in riding the easier parts, veer off when the woods open up to the access road.
