Cut and rake style trail that rides relatively smooth in its natural state. It follows a ridge with some granite features and faces down to nearly the bottom of the FSR. A rather significant, but not too hard, granite sting in the tail awaits you near the bottom. Let the bike run and have a good time.

Access Info

Climb the South Rutherford Cr FSR to the 3km sign. Turn left into the woods, across the creek (might be dry in the summer) and up the short, punchy hill to the start of Lower PhD. Turn left at top of hill and head 20m or so to the start of the trail on your right

      Good trail! Fun and flowy, and some little rocky bits. The last third of the trail is much harder than the rest. It consists of a long rock roll...

       its likely the easiest trail in the PhD area. Rock rolls and some uneven terrain, but good fun if you find the flow

       The final rock roll is long and looks intimadating, but actually rides quite easy if you take your time and hold your line
