This cross country style trail is a summer only trail. The blacklock style soils tend to flood during heavy rains and in the winter season. Please exit at Swam-pass Bypass to climb the gravel road in wet conditions. This is a great easy climb to access the upper trails of Sour Mash (DH only), White Lightning, and Bootlegger. Excellent trail for younger riders as the climbs aren't to arduous.
