A very rocky trail that is single track, and is very steep with some drops.

Access Info

Start at Double Peak Park, go passed the stage to the right, and ride straight to the only trail. Make the second left on to the trail, and ride until the intersection. Once at the intersection with the bench, stay straight, and and stick to the left side for the rest of the trail.

Disclaimer

Do not plan to ride back to the trail head, unless you are in for a very steep, 4 mile journey back to the top of the mountain.
