This trail has the feel of a classic old school mountain bike trail.
It has it all. A challenging climb, great switch backs and an amazing descent.
There are some well built wood features and some awesome rock slabs.
The trail does a figure 8 and the route is intuitive.

In the process of being sanctioned.

Dry and tacky. Loads of fun. Mosquitoes are fed for now, but don't forget your bug spray.

 Fantastic trail! Make sure when doing the climb that when you get to a sign that reads "Blue" take a left. Great switch back uphill ride.
