This is a continuation of the Shearer Road East Trail along the river. It's a similar style trail traversing through a larger woodlot. There are many exposed roots/rocks along with several log ramps and bridges. A longer bridge located near the back of the trail has some "up and down" grade. Optional "B line" obstacles include a small rock garden, a log skinny, and a ladder ramp.

      Lots of debris, mostly smaller sticks and branches, but enough to cause some issues with them getting caught in spokes and rear drive train

      Leaf covered, but mostly dry. A few soft spots, but rideable. Tree down about 1/4 Mile from the end of the trail.

      Most of the trail is dry, but several mucky sections. Would recommend walking bikes through them.

       Tree down by the largest bridge. Have to dismount but easiest able to step over. Fun trail. Most rocks of any trail I’ve rode.
