Slytherin runs from the Northwestern corner of the Potter Hill Meadows West to where it joins the Martha Deering Trails. This trail is best ridden down hill. It is fairly technical with many small rocky features and gullies. There is one short muddy section with an old wooden bridge which is not in great shape but passable. The trail is generally open and well defined and is an awesome mountain biking trail.

Access Info

Access from the Northwestern corner of the Potter Hill Meadows. The entrance to the trail is often fairly obscured and overgrown but press through for about 10 yards and the trail opens up beautifully.
