Fun trail with lots of rocks, roots, sand and some climbs. The trail sheds water well and is generally rideable right after a rain.

The first part of the trail is fairly flat and twisty. The first climb is an old creek bed and gets tough for a second before flattening back out. A few miles in you'll find some fast downhills before dropping into the pines. Lots of root filled drops give way to rocky climbs around mile 5.

There is a quick descent into a series of switchbacks and they are followed by another climb. Pick your line and hit it!

The last few miles are a mix of pine trees, rocks, short punchy climbs, and a short flat section.

Have fun!
