This trail is very steep with lots of roots. It is muddy and slippery at all but the dryest times. Most of the woodwork has seen better days, and the bigger stunts are mostly gone or unrideable now. It is quite technical, but has flow when it's ridden fast. A dh or Enduro bike is best.

Access Info

Park at the lower gate on the Ozzard rd, and ride/hike up till it flattens out with an excellent view. About half way up the mountain. The trail starts right beside the first pole on the way back down the road. The entrance is very grown over at the moment, but it is rideable about 10 ft. down the trail.
