XC trail with lots of ups, downs, twists and turns. Nothing too technical but lots of roots and some short bits of wood work. There's a nice stop at a bench to sit and have a view before finishing up by the shelter.

       Did not like this trail after coming off half Nelson. Rooted and not a good flow. Just different after being spoiled by the machine groomed trails.

       Some nice single track to add on to your loop if you're riding in the area. Good flowy single track.
