This is the newest trail in the area, it is 5 miles long. Like many of the trails in the area it is an old logging road that was decommissioned, washed out and over grown with brush and trees for many years. The first mile (or so at the top of the trail) is old double track fairly straight and fast with 3 deep water bars (ditches) near the end of the double track, one of them has a ramp to jump it but you better be pretty good. After that it's a gentle down hill single track with lots of fun whoop de doo's. There are 2 log bridges (single logs with the top split off) that are rideable and have go arounds also, these bridges will eventually be removed.
This trail is fun to ride in either direction with no life threatening features to deal with.
