Description

This trail is an abandoned ski trail except for the little quirk at the end. Start at the bottom of Oh My God Hill on Games Trail and climb a narrow twisting trail before crossing Games Trail and continuing through a section of valleys and humps. The trail levels as it passes intersections of C3 and D2 and across the Games Trail/Rabbit Run Connector and then rises right to the D3 intersection.

The trail narrows before it crosses Games Trail again and remains narrow through the fun bit at the end which twists and turns at the base of the cliff where there are frozen waterfalls. This scenic section runs roughly parallel to Games Trail and it's common to glimpse skiers just below the beautiful birch trees. The trail joins D3. Both D3 and the turned back bit of D1 are also nice summer trails.

Flora & Fauna

The forest is mostly mature spruce with very nice groves of birch towards the end.
