One of the more natural trails with many natural and some man-made TTFs with steep and exceptionally rooty sections. Like Grannies, this trail will own you in the wet.

Access Info

Accessed off Mountain Hwy by an opening in the forest that looks like a road. Heading down the trail where Grannies heads west and an old section of unmaintained trail continues down Crippler turns off Granies and heads south to Baden Powell.

Running well, if a little bit slippery. Really underrated, often challenging tech trail
