Description

This trail picks up right off the side of highway 20 under a huge Oak tree.... then dumps you back out on the highway (use caution!!) right above the NID trail. Best as a one-way (downhill) trail because riders come screaming down this badboy and it's super techy tight. There is some cliffhangers, jumps, rock gardens, drops, and big swoopy fast turns!! Makes a great grand finale to Pioneer Trail when you shuttle from town.

The Uren St. parking area is the best place to stage a car if you shuttle or park-and-ride up NID to make it a loop.
