Description

This trail starts out with a short continuation of fun descending like Roller Coaster, but then becomes level to slightly climbing for a bit. You won't have much trouble pedaling along over the bits of volcanic rock in the trail, as you work your way around through the woods.

After half a mile or so, the trail descends again. This section is very flowy and fun, requiring little to no brakes in most places.

About a third of the way along the trail you'll reach a marked intersection with Bogus Trail, and you'll stay left to continue this trail. There's more descending, then a short bit of very mild climbing to the end.

You'll pop out at a kiosk with Elk Traverse right in front of you and Bogus Trail off to your right.
