Rusty Bucket is one of several trails located in the "Woodlot" section of Brackendale (west side of Hwy 99). The area is a second growth stand, with predominately Cedar/Hemlock/Spruce and moss. Its lush green and very open. The trail itself has an approximate 2% grade running south to north. It has a mixture of (mostly) meandering wide flat trail, with some root sections (spaced) and a smattering of rocks. There is one feature: a blow down log (stepped). It is a perfect area to either rip on a dry day or wonder on a wet one. Its also a perfect place to practice roots, rocks and lines. First timers to Pros can all have fun. A wonderful place for the family. I find, after a nice peddle up, Larry's Loop to Reefer to 'Rusty Bucket' then to Sweet Judy to be a perfect causal run.
