Trail shared by Frank Maguire

A short connection to Brush Ridge Trail and the start of one of the best descents.

Description

This is reroute of the old Chestnut Spring Trail, which used to connect two State Lease Camps. Both ends were badly erroded, so this reroute, combined with Dutch Alvin, have replaced those sections.

The second half is sometimes called Chestnut Spring Extension, and connects over to Brush Ridge. It has one of the best descents, but is starting to show the tell tale signs of over use. Chances are it will be rerouted at some point in the future, but for now its a hoot!
