Great trail to climb your way to Mushroom Head, Red Sonja [both above the powerline] or Black Betty [left turn before the powerline]. There's a creepy cabin and some boardwalk sections that are fun.

Access Info

Access is off Burma Road. Red Sonja and Phat Bastard start at almost the same place, so make sure you're on the right one. If you're climbing jumps, you're probably on Red Sonja.

      A couple of ice patches lower down, but most of it is perfect.
