Trail shared by Nick Wilder

Varied trail makes this a great connection between better trails.

Description

This trail has three distinct sections:

The southern end (near the start at the Bell Rock Trail) suffers from highway noise and overhead power lines and is not very aesthetic.

The middle section is actually on paved roads through a neighborhood. The USFS has put up carsonite trail markers, but they're very hard to follow. Use the Mountain Project MTB Project mobile app to stay on the path!

The northern section is very nice, fast, and flowy singletrack. Very fun and well built, this part is the only one that is a worthwhile destination.
