A moderately wide machine-built trail that rolls through open cedar forest on the west side of Duck Pond. The trail is a lollipop, rideable either clockwise or counterclockwise, with riders starting and finishing on the "stick" of the lollipop either direction. No sustained climbs, but lots of fun swooping downhills and bermed corners. A notable highlight is the steep ridge along which the trail snakes for a few hundred meters.

Access Info

From the eastern end of Square-a-Bit (or the Round-a-Lot ski trail), turn left and head down Duck Pond towards Murphy's Field. Look for the entrance to Ollie's Folly on your left near a large rock.


This trail is on private property. The landowners ask that riders stick to the singletrack and not ride on the doubletrack ski trails.
