“Awesome, smooth singletrack that hugs the hill side as it descends the valley.”— Bryce Knudson
This trail travels along the hillside and through wide forested sections. Small rocky sections, smooth singletrack, hairpin turns and rolling terrain galore. You'll cross 3 streams. The first one is an easy run through in summer, second has a stone bridge and the third requires expert skills to run, but has a log crossing. There is a short climb after the third stream that leads to a doubletrack downhill to the bottom at a well maintained fireroad (Middle Control Road or on google maps: Mill Creek Rd). This is the end of this trail.
