This short, sporty trail starts off at the upper end rather mellow and then drops and picks up the pace. There's a few technical, chunky drops/steps and lots of roots. It's listed as a BLACK DIAMOND, but with the exception of the couple techy bits it's mainly a BLUE SQUARE trail.

      Few wet spots. Try not to ruin the trail going around the mud.

       Pretty well hidden trail. Reccomend taking powerline to snow forest. Technical rock garden and some tricky tree roots to get by. It's a one way only. Go after a rain storm or durning pretty awesome meadow to see
