“Alternately swooping and twisty trail in spruce forest.”
— Adam Linstedt
This trail is typically accessed when going out on Woodcock
trail by taking a left at the well-used junction. It's a fast and fun section most notable for some swooping flow on loamy soil and some tight twisty turns through the trees.
Towards the end, you emerge from the forest onto an open area. After a brief descent across a bog and then short climb, you'll go down to a drainage crossing and then up the other side into the field where the trail joins Pase Point
trail. From here a right takes you quickly back to the start (via Woodcock
or Dobbin House
), whereas a left gives you a chance to follow the rim of part of the Blackwater Canyon all the way around back to the start.
