Rolly and rocky to start. Once it starts going downhill, there are some drops and jumps along with rocks and roots. A steep finish puts you out back on the fireroad climb.

Dry and dusty but fun. This trail is narrow and looks like it hasn’t seen much use compared to the other trails on Spencer. Love the steep last...

Trail is clear. With a fair bit of precipitation recently, the woodwork looks slick though.
