The lower segment for Traveling Man was a new addition to the Smith Creek network in 2016. The trail is a fun meandering descent with a cross country edge. The lowest section makes a great alternate ending to Santa's Revenge.

Access Info

Take a "right" heading North on the double track traverse from the end of upper Traveling Man and look for the entrance marked with flagging tape and a tree archway.

       See my comments on Travelin' Man Top.
      A little work could make this a real top downhill run for us XC types.
