This is a multi-use trail connecting the north trail area with the future west trail area. Currently, it accesses one trail, Yew Haw trail which brings riders back to the gate at the upper end of Acer Spades trail which then connects to the north trail head parking lot. It also connects to Camas Crest, which is an existing road that connects with Weyerhaeuser road at the western edge of Willamalane property.

Access Info

Access is via the steep road at the road gate intersection or via Lower Mossy Maple trail, as extended. Access from the west is via Weyerhaeuser road and Camas Crest road/trail.

       Ups and downs with a few large rocky areas in the mx. Great shady area to cool off after the long switchback climb up.

       Rocks get pretty slick after rains for a couple days. 3 sectios, longest is about 150 feet, just stay on the pedals and keep the cadence and speed up so ya don't spin out. In wet weather the mud caking in tires will make the climb alot harder due to less traction. Have fun.
