An optional ride, soon to be a connected loop to Gales Creek. (currently you loop connecting the gravel road to Gales Gales Creek) Very nice trail, punchy climbs, easy switchbacks, lots of roots. Old historic forest trail. Some unique horse holes here and there- manure too. Be ready for anything. Lots of stinging needles, blackberry's vines. Be careful.

Access Info

Gales Creek from Reeher's Camp- signed about 3/4 of a mile on the left.

Tread is in prime condition. The brushed out sections are great. The unbrushed sections are a little pokey, scratchy, and stingy
