      Tree down about 1/2 way through (8-in diameter). Plenty of sight line to slow down, but you'll need to climb over to continue.

       The greatest trail in the system if you like it rocky and rooty and a little bit routy. You can definitely still send it on an XC bike, but its fun on a trail bike too and a little less jolting. It keeps you on your toes and has enough natural features and amazingly grippy rock to make even high class riders happy. I'm extremely thankful for this trail, it isn't new age smooth and polished, it's rough and rugged like this land, and thats the way trails are supposed to be made.

       If you’re in copper harbor and want natural, all-mountain tech- this is your trail. This trail is old school and has a lot of fun tech moves and steep rock rolls. Reminded me of my days in AZ, and is a great change of pace from the fast, flowy stuff. Worth a shuttle trip up.

       Wow, this is a rough, rugged, rocky, rooty trail. If you're looking for flowy and fast, this isn't it. If you're looking to stretch your technical ability, descending or climbing (there's not much to climb really, just those rocky ridges here and there), this trail will rattle you to the next level.
