An old Forest Service Road that had previously been abandoned and was referred to as "Climb 3". The lower section was reconstructed to a dirt road(closed to motorized vehicles) in 2019 during the Flagstaff Watershed Protection Project for forest thinning purposes. The road is going to be obliterated in the future, but the MEDL trail planning effort is planning to have a singletrack trail in this area replacing the need for the road and Climb 3. This singletrack replacement should be built after the final draft of the plan is out and approved, so 2022 at absolute earliest(more likely about 2024).

This trail is unsanctioned.
