“Varied and challenging singletrack through a variety of terrain.”
— Jon Sundquist
Though only 0.9 miles, this trail packs a lot of variety in. It starts on Mutton Hollow Rd. where the singletrack from Holimont comes out on the other side. It follows the road for just a bit before diving in among the spruce for a nice swoopy section. It follows the contour around a spur and brings you into some rooty deciduous trees. Watch out, sometimes those roots have been known to reach out and grab you.
After a big log-over, the trail follows an old logging road for just a few dozen feet before narrowing down to a singletrack again.
To avoid a spring, the trail dives down the hill on a series of sharp switchbacks until it crosses the drainage on a narrow bridge. What goes down must go up and another series of narrow switchbacks brings you back up onto the contour.
A little further along, the trail comes to a creek and takes a right, following the creek until it comes to a nice rocky section good for crossing. The trail swings back to the left to regain the elevation eventually heading right again at a tricky rooty turn at the top. A 29er really helps on that.
The next several hundred yards can be quite technical with a narrow rock pathway across an otherwise wet section, followed by some corduroyed singletrack leading you through a gantlet of younger growth. That tells you you are almost to the end where if dumps you out on an old logging road. Take that old road (now with a singletrack down the middle) up the hill to join the white trail.
