One of the best neighborhood trails on the West Shore. This connects the Noonchester road above Quail Lake to the Homewood neighborhood. Great benches overlooking the eastern sunrise at the top. Flowy with some tight corners. rideable both directions, but some uphill corners can be a challenge in dusty summer months. Can be connected with other neighborhood trails for a fun day. Also, this is the best way to come off Ellis Peak (by finishing with a nearly 2 mile singletrack descent to the lake).

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
