This trail is for hiking and mountain biking. No motors please. Ride do not slide as the Gun Lake trails have lava ash as the trail base. This trail can be used in both directions for hiking but used as a downhill trail primarily for mountain biking. To access you climb up Penrose logging road and then the Doghouse road. The climb starts to get unrideable which means you are almost there. You hit a junction then turn left and there should be a faint trail to your right straight away. Start hiking for a couple minutes and then it is mainly downhill with tight trees and some steep stuff.

This trail is unsanctioned.

      Dry, sandy, tough climb to access and a new ugly clear-cut to cross make the beauty viewpoints and random flow not worth the effort.

      Fun with a few climbs. The top got logged and the trail is a bit harder to find, still there. Could use a bit of cleaning up on the sides
