Description

A semi-secret trail with teeter-totters, some steep descents, and a little nice cruising through the woods. Some sections are very steep and rutted.

To find the start, ride the Game Creek trail from the top of the gondola down the ridge about almost a mile. There's one trail junction: Game Creek goes down to the left, and this one to the right. Be courteous when coming out into the neighborhood at the end.

Forecasting the weather...

As of today this trail is pretty much unrideable. There are about 50 down trees blocking the trail that will take many many hours to cut out Jun 8, 2016


I rode this trail July 30th to take the shortcut back to the house. It was not worth it. As Joe said, pretty much unrideable. Teeter totters are mostly busted up. Was probably fun before all the fell trees though. Aug 19, 2016


I hike this all the time and they recently cut the trees so all is good now Sep 5, 2016
