Short connector in ravine below Aspen Gardens. Needs some TLC to become a decent MTB trail but has potential. Connects well with Landsdown hill and farm trails. Rides best East to West.

Disclaimer

Trail needs TLC to be fully rideable

       Fallen trees have been cleared on the E and lower W section of the trail. Fully rideable now and in perfect condition.
