A steep and loose alternative track from Abbot Creek Road.

Dan Oakland

Overview

Later in summer be careful of grazing cattle.

Description

Head up Abbot Creek Rd about 3.5 miles to the campsite on the left side of the trail. Just past it there is what looks to be a singletrack to the left. This is the start of Shay Railroad Trail. While timid at first, it has sections that drop extremely steeply with loose sand and deep ruts. I do not recommend doing this solo. In a bit more than 1.5 miles, look for a marked left turn option or continuing straight is referred to as "Goodmill".

If you're looking for a downhill challenge, Shay Railroad is it. Be aware, there is a fair amount of climbing on Goodmill to get back to the Millwood staging area.
