Official multi-use bidirectional gravel trail. The trail is open year-round to bikes as well as equestrian and pedestrian traffic. Bikes are required by OSU to yield to all other users.

Trail starts with a steep punchy climb, then a short slightly downhill traverse to a quick descent through some loose and tight corners.

Access Info

Access the top of this trail from the intersection of Rd 620 with Patterson Rd (Rd 600), and the bottom of this trail from Patterson Rd (Rd 600) again, within a few hundred feet of Lewisberg Saddle.
