Old road that has become singletrack in sections, good alternative to the main road if you are up in deer creek. A few steep loose sections near the top and then mellows out.

Access Info

The upper end is right at the saddle/junction on the Deer Creek access road, behind a berm, and is a little hard to find. The trick is to go around the berm on the "downhill side."

The lower end is one of the gated off side roads on deer creek road above Pattee Canyon.
