Trail shared by Kevin Ketchman

Starting on a significant climb, this trail ends up winding down the hill over more than a mile.

Description

Accessed from the parking lot off Old Ingomar Road or from the Koto Buki Trail Purple/Black Dot Blaze, look for solid purple blazes. The trail begins by climbing towards Ridge Road (approx. 200 ft) before making a sharp right turn at the intersection with the Koto Buki Trail, just before the road.

From here, the trail descends all the way to the end, where it once again connects with the Koto Buki Trail, at the edge of the woods. Along the way, you'll follow the fence line of the police academy.

Also, many singletrack spurs shoot off of the trail and can be taken to extend the loop or exit the woods on Ingomar Road before the end of the trail.
