This is a relatively short trail leaving the Bachelor St. parking lot. It's most notable feature is a short, rocky, stepped descent about 1/3 of the way down the trail (leaving from the parking lot) and then a step up onto a short line of rocks. The stepped climb is challenging to clear when riding in the opposite direction.

Personal note: Given this trail's proximity to the parking lot and short chunky descent, I find it useful for testing/making adjustments to bike setup.

Access Info

This trail starts directly from the Bachelor St. parking lot. Standing with your back to the road, it is the trail leaving the parking lot farthest to the left. It can occasionally be obscured by cars.
