A rough, rocky trail with lots of medium to large sized drops (2.5-5 ft.) One of my favorite trails in the forest!

NOTE: please do not edit or change this track in any major way. It is used as a test track for locals and racers.

Access Info

From Woodrow Road coming up, take a right onto the path and then another right to stay on the path. Eventually you will come to a rock outcropping and the trail is on your right. It's hard to tell where the trail actually starts so look at the map when you get close.

Disclaimer

Please do not edit this track on any major way. It is used as a test track for locals.
