Wing and a Prayer is a dual direction intermediate trail. The trail is named for the numerous birds of prey that guard the Seven Mile Creek Watershed. Bald Eagles and Red Tail Hawks call this coastal valley home. Soar down the trail as it descends from top of the landing at the end of Upper Copperhead Road to bottom of 7 Mile Creek. Riders can choose to continue down to the bottom of the trail which ties into Lower Copperhead Road, New Bones, and end of Bam Ba Lam, or climb back up Lower Reboot to cut the climb in half. Trail is a more challenging climb with some technically demanding sections and contours along the drainage with more exposure. This trail has some small surprises that should keep the trail exciting on a some-what traditional contour trail. Watch your exposure. Do not ride lower section after rain. Do not ride up Tumbler. Do not ride up Gnome Wrecker.

Access Info

Accessed from the top of Upper Copperhead Road or bottom of Lower Copperhead Road. You can also cut this trail in half by taking the Landing Pad to Lower Reboot or from end of Gnome Wrecker.

Disclaimer

Do not ride up Tumbler, Gnome Wrecker or Bam Ba Lam.
