This DNR-built flow trail links the top of Preston Railroad to the west end of Iverson, providing some new jump opportunities and opening up more alternatives to get back to the trailhead.

This trail is newly completed as of November 2021 and still has some soft areas, so please use good judgement and avoid riding during heavy precipitation events.

      Occasional loose dirt and rutting on some of the berms but nothing too bad

      Dirt is perfect, only the usual braking bumps to be aware of.

      Top is a bit wet, after the road its pretty much perfect (except for the classic braking bumps)

      very wet, many puddles.

      A bit greasy in spots and a few puddles. Braking bumps to test your nerves and suspension. The faster you hit them, the smoother they become.
