A delightfully narrow ribbon of singletrack traveling through the trees.

Description

The start of this trail is found a few hundred feet north of Looking Glass Road (FSR #63) on a closed gravel road.

The entrance of the trail is on the left, but it may be a little overgrown. From there, the trail is hard to miss. The singletrack starts off with a few steep climbs and gradually levels out into a gradual and sustained climb through dense forest on the edge of a slump (the sink the trail is named for).

The trail appears to come to an end in a clearing with no real markings, but the USFS maps show it continuing west on a doubletrack to reach Looking Glass Road (FSR #63) again. Continue on NFR #35 and Jubilee Lake Connector to access the lake and rope swing.
