There are three sections (i.e., two road crossings). The upper section (also known as Summit Trail) begins from a panoramic lookout, and is fast flowy singletrack (stay right - or you will end up in a rutted out moto area). The middle section is a straight line through a dry creek bed (lots of babyhead rocks). The lower section begins as a fast flowy single track, which drops you into a creek crossing (can be very deep in winter) then a short steep climb and ends with a very technical flat section.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
