A fantastic trail that doesn't see a lot of traffic.
This trail rolls through mixed forest and traverses some more open ridge lines.
The trail is mostly hardpack with some looser and steep sections.
The final decent is a highlight with about ~8 small jumps (15-30cm) to get your tires off the ground and put a smile on your face.

You can ride this trail out and back, but there are some climbs on the way back that may be impossible?

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

Bit of a climb at the start but great flowy trail. It was bone dry when we rode it so that makes the big downhills a bit sketchy and I actually...

Trail is great shape. 3 trees down (~12") none of them are overly dangerous, just flow killers as you have to dismount to get over/under them.

 Fun trail to extend Spirit Trail. This trail should only be ridden North to South (downhill) unless you want to work really hard and push your bike back up a few really steep sections.

 Rode this today - South to North (to get to Tony's for lunch!!). Wanted to extend my Spirit ride as well. Only one stretch that i had to hike a bike as there was a step down feature in the way - really quite an enjoyable ride Of course i love riding it down as well super fun.
