This is the longest of the trails at Russel Mill Pond. The trail is largely smooth and well packed with lots of fun features along the way. There are a few rock gardens and exposed bedrock along the way

       This trail is not easy and is not a blue, in my opinion. As a new rider I found it very difficult due to its technical features of many rock gardens, large rocks and boulders in the path, steep rock faces to go down, etc. My riding partner, who is much more experienced, loved the trail, but I’d recommend being more experienced before attempting this trail.
