A hand built old school cross country trail which makes a great XC option for getting to or from the bike park from town with lots of great little ups and downs and some lovely views of the valley.

      Two trees across the trail between the climb in/ ride out and Buckethead. Don't attempt to ride through the mud. Its deeper than it looks

      Rode the entire trail from start to finish - clear and dry except for swampy section (generally wet all year round) just east of the Cedar grove.

      Trail is fast and dry with the exception of the stretch between the Ale Trail and Buckethead, one swampy section due to spring run-off.

      The trail is in great condition from the river up past the lookout on the North side. The rest is still in thaw mode.
