This trail connects Ranger Summit from the West Bragg side to Ridgeback 3 on the Station Flats side.

Half way up/down the west side (between R3 and Ranger Creek), the trail runs along the temporary logging road for about 100m. Turn right when you hit the dirt road and ride up/down the hill before turning left back on to the singletrack (follow the orange diamond blazes on short posts).

Access Info

From West Bragg Creek, access is from Ranger Summit. The trail connects to Ridgeback 3 near the top of the ridge, north of the rock garden.

Horseback riders have really done some damage to the trail. I'd say at least 60% of the trail is damaged with horse shoe prints as deep at 6...

99% of the trail is good, but there is an epic mudhole or two near the bottom, East of the bridge.

The prevalent muddy spots at the bottom are still muddy and quite rutted. Otherwise it was dry

 1. Please walk around the three very short closed off sections west of the bridge. They still need time to dry out.
2. Please avoid the entire trail if it's rained or snowed. Unless the ground is frozen.
3. Leave space in front of the next rider on the down. You don't want them holding you up as you hit endless berms.
