Description

This is a fun, forested singletrack climb to a great descent through the trees.

This trail climbs steeply from the start, crosses a small stream, and then heads into more moderate pine forest climbing. A final steep, rocky climb takes you to a flat area before the descent through some switchbacks.

Stay to the right through the cattle gate to get back to the road.
