Description

This trail is like marmite, you either love it or hate it. It is littered with roots in mostly flat terrain that has a few uphill sections. It's a technical challenge to get through, yet so rewarding, as it has the best views when transitioning from one valley to the other. This trail does not see much traffic. Be sure to avoid when wet!

Difficulty

Widely variable, narrow trail tread with steeper grades and unavoidable obstacles of 15in/38cm tall or less. Obstacles may include unavoidable bridges 24in/61cm wide or less, large rocks, gravel, difficult root sections, and more. Ideal for advanced-level riders.
