Description

The trail starts from the parking area off of Malibu Road. Along the way it changes from singletrack to road often, but the trail is marked with sufficient signage.

The main trail has a loose gravel tread and is a little wider than normal singletrack. You'll take a left when the trail merges with a gravel road for a small downhill. The signs lead you back to a nice easy singletrack in the woods where you'll cross a small bridge that eventually leads you to a nicely built suspension bridge.

A short set of stairs at the end of the bridge leads to a flat singletrack that merges onto another gravel road. The trail abruptly ends (sign is available) but you are allowed to turn right and go up a tenth of a mile to access Oldenburg Community.
