A traverse feeding into technical rock sections.

Description

From the south end, the trail branches to the left from South Side Trail Singletrack. This trail winds its way to a fork, with a left turn taking you to a short connector to Rails to River Trail and a right turn allowing you to continue on Upland Trail. After a creek crossing, the trail climbs steadily with occasional grade reversals. Near the midway point, the trail surface becomes rocky.

Around the three-quarters mark, there's a small rock roll followed by a rocky connector that leads to the Rails to River Trail on the left. Continuing to the right will take you to another fork. Turning left at this fork will take you down a somewhat steep chute and onto Rails to River Trail near its intersection with South Side Trail Singletrack. Taking a right will bring you close to the end of South Side Trail Singletrack.
