The main trunk of the Mice. It is nearly impossible to NOT be on Rusty at some point.
It runs end to end (almost), has a great big new parking lot just off Arawana for the Shuttlers/Mid-Mice Loopers and so many great trail end/start on it.

Access Info

Either the giant parking lot off Arawana.
or
A hundred or so feet just after the creek on Marmot, there will be a left hand trail heading up/acrossish. You cross the road and an upwards angle and keep going. You are on Rusty.

       Agréable à rouler, seulement une partie technique, pourrait être classée vert
