Description

Newly signed as "Short N Sweet" also known as SSX trail. Marked as Trail 510 on legacy maps.

This is a short loop starting and ending on Knowleton Rd across from the Figure 8 Trail. It's good to loop in with other trails as part of a longer ride. Some moderate climbs, but nothing too steep.

Short N Sweet Trail follows Yellow Blazes. Colt Trail crosses this trail in several places and shares a short climbing segment as well following Red blazes. The shared segment is blazed with both red and yellow blazes.

Rode with Jimmy. It was the first time for both of us on this trail. Fun stuff, we'll certainly be back.
