“A flowing traverse of the steep St. Louis River valley hills.”— Matt Goodman
Starting at the Loki trailhead & small parking lot off of Hwy 210, the singletrack dips into the woods and begins a very gradual 2.2-mile ascent. The rollers, flow, and berms make the ascent barely noticeable for avid riders. The dirt, machine-built singletrack is relatively wide and there are few rocks, and no logs or rooty sections - it's smooth rolling the entire way.
This trail does have frequent wooden boardwalks/bridges that are very well-built, but some have steeper angles, and they can be slippery when wet, so beginners should be cautious.
