This is one of the original skidder roads for logging in the early 1900's. It can be ridden as an out and back and on the ride back it has just enough drop to keep you spinning and carving the turns.
Some riders use it for a connector to the Cougar Rocks, OD, and East Fork Sylvia Creek trails.
It's a wet trail most of the year but from the middle of summer to early fall when is drier is best.

      Large ponds in spots. Trail work today pushing mud off the trail and cleaning and adding drainage to the work that Steve and Eileen have done.

      City cleared it about a week ago. Should be good for a while. Some places never dry out, but it's as dry as it gets.

      Open and in good shape. Nice job of brush clearing has been done. There are still a couple of wet seeps. If you're hauling back down the trail...
