This singletrack trail connects the Henry Creek Trail with the Lake Creek Road 028. The upper end is an old Forest Service Trail and the lower end is an old closed road. There is a short extremely steep section with marble like rocks that are extremely loose making this a double black diamond run. A short hike a bike down is advise-able on this section. The trail starts out on the upper end with a short climb up to the ridge top, crosses the ridge, then a fairly steep downhill section to an old road. Turn left when you hit the old road to connect to the Lake Creek Road 028. This trail is used by cattle in the summer.

Access Info

The upper end is accessed via the Henry Creek Trail. The lower end is accessed off the switchback on the Lake Creek Road 028. A GPS track is recommended. There are no signs.
