This is very tough single track, with no obvious bailout point so give yourself a few hours. No long extended climbs, but lots of grueling short ups and downs, and some tight track to keep your speed in check on the downhills. Park near the gate at the intersection of Dunbar and Reservoir Roads.

      Clear except for a few low hanging trees. Some of it is hard to follow as does not seem to be ridden much.

      Lots of trees down, derailleur breakers everywhere. In need of major clean up.

       Technical and probably challenging for any rider- well some parts at least. Description says "very tough singletrack" and that certainly describes some of it. This trail will be super fun after it gets cleaned up.

       I'm surprised there are so few comments about this trail. DEFINITELY one of the toughest mtb trails anywhere. DO NOT attempt this with some pos bike. Expect some of the most challenging riding you've ever done.
