Cross-country style singletrack that travels up and over a ridge above Dimple Hill and twists among sections of old growth and massive wolf trees before emerging in a recent white oak habitat restoration project and existing onto the road.

OSU has officially marked this trail as not to be ridden when travel on the trail disturbs the trail tread.

Access Info

Access both the top and the bottom of this trail from the 660 road. The bottom of the trail continues on across the road as Hydra trail.
