This trail is popular with locals and makes for one of the longer rides in the area. The first 3 km up the dirt road from the ski resort maintenance area has the hardest, most sustained climbing of the whole trail. Don't give up there After 3 km, the trail turns into single track for the remainder of the ride. Updated (Sept. 18, 2015) with new single track section on west side.
