Overview:

Short-but-challenging twisty singletrack in the dense woods just west of Willows Road in Redmond. Steep ups'n'downs make it too difficult for most riders, but for those who live or work nearby, it's a great workout. Connects to the Sammamish River Trail and Puget Power Trail. Can get swampy in the winter and overgrown with nettles in the summer.

Tech rating is high due to roots, sharp turns and steeps, but those sections are easy to walk around. Grunt rating is medium because there are no long climbs, however, the many short steep climbs will get your heart pumping. Not recommended for beginners.

The net elevation distance is only a couple hundred feet, but you can easily combine for over 1k on all the fierce little climbs.
Typical Conditions:

Can get messy Mud, swamp, nettles, and blackberries are all pretty common. It's best to wait a few days after heavy rains to let it dry out a bit. If you're riding in the late Spring / early Summer, bring something to beat down the nettles.
Local Points of Interest:

There's a gun club at the SW edge of the woods, and at some point you ride right next to an archery range.
