Trail shared by Peter Taylor

A steady climb on a fire road to the trail rewarded with super fast, flowing singletrack back down.

Features -none-

Dogs prohibited. Closure during wet weather. Be mindful of surround private property Be mindful of hikers and other bikers, although from my experience this isnt a very well known location and have rarely seen anyone about. There is no fee for the use of the space or car park for now.

Description

From the car park head up the boring fire road for about 2 miles. You may be wondering why your taking the trouble but if you're looking for some super fast, flowing, fun, windy, predictable singletrack, you'll be amply rewarded. Rocky parts are rare due to the fact this trail was human built in 2008. This is a easy, quick and fun work out trail for after work, or great for new mountain bikers wanting to gain confidence.

The trail is somewhat hard to notice as you continue up the fire road, but once you see the large gate to the caretakers property, you'll see the trail on the opposite side on the bank heading up the hill.

It's still some steady climbing for a little longer up the trail. If you feel the need, you can use short cuts that were made for machinery when digging the trail out. They are easily noticeable on the switchbacks.

At the very peak of the hill you'll find easy access to the top banks. If you're craving some air, then i have cleared a pathway whereby there are some viable natural jumping areas, but nothing special.

This would be a great trail to night ride without any dangerous obstacles or rocks. This is simply very smooth flowing, predictable singletrack. No gates or daily closures.

Came upon a rattlesnake crossing the road. I decided to give it right of way.

I like the trail, but there are 3 gates to go through which kind of break up the flow. Also try the new single track, "Sam the Eagle."
