A nice trail bobs and weaves along the ridge.

Description

This trail climbs the ridge above Fiddle Creek up varying grades. The trail stats off steeper before leveling off after about a mile. After about two miles the grade increases again and you're once again climbing. From here the trail continues to climb up varying grades to the junction with Halls Ranch Trail.

The trail sees light Moto use so it's not all thrashed and troughed out; however, in places, it is primitive, under maintained, and overgrown, but thats the fun part. There are loose switchbacks and some exposure, but most of it weaves through dense forest canopy and is a nice piece of trail.

It is different from most other local trails. The "moto" factor is obvious on this one.
