Ridge-line trail connecting the Ballard neighborhood to the double track. Trail goes over top a train tunnel and puts you on the north side of the tracks. Has a steep section on the end close to the river.

Access Info

Ride to the end of Samantha Way (residential parking only), and go down the steep footpath. Turn right onto the path to avoid a skinny off-camber bit of single-track, or go straight and let it rip! If you go straight, turn right at the first intersection to stay on Smokey.
