Overview

Description

This trail makes for a fast and fun descent back towards Grindstone Lake and the Grindstone Lake Trail. Expect berms and banks along the switchbacks and fast/flowing sections with doubles for those that are brave enough to attempt.

This trail makes for a very fun descent back to the Grindstone Lake Trail. It has a few difficult rock areas and roots to avoid which add to the excitement of this trail. Also, the thistle can be very overgrown in the fall and most gloves won't protect from their thorns at speed. This trail is very difficult to ride in reverse due to the steep grade and tight switchbacks.
