Description

The start of the trail begins at the top of Bier Bridge Trail. After a steep climb up a pine needle covered tread, the trail flattens out and starts down a long descent. The trail is narrow and has several tight switchbacks. On the way down there are two offshoots (left) that end up at the Pipeline Trail. Stay right for the longest ride down. Be cautious on the blind corners, it is a well-traveled trail.

There is a narrow section between two trees that will make you think twice about those wide bars. This trail has a viewpoint about half way down which overlooks Dover. The lower half of the trail has several steep switchbacks that can be a bit washed out. Enjoy the ride through the trees as it can be fast and flowing. The trail empties out at the bottom of the Pipeline Trail.

If you're making this a climb, bring your bug spray.

Glad I found this trail. Plenty of large and small rock features to get crafty with!
