Description

This is a true multi-use trail (hiking, mtb, horses, and moto's). Be aware of motos.

The trail is wide singletrack, very fast, with just a few short uphill sections. There aren't any intersections to worry about.

Start at the top of High Drive heading North from the parking area. Roll it as fast as you like until you finally come out on Gold Camp Road by Tunnel #1.

Beware the gravel! When it's dry, the gravel can be quite deep and sandy. When it's moist and tacky, though, it's a hoot.
