Sections of this trail have been replaced with a crushed gravel road. The power company is replacing the power line poles.
The trail heads into the woods just off the start of the Newton Brainerd Road. There are a few steep sections that will require you to carry the bike. One near the start of the trail as it starts to head up. The second is near the end of the trail under the power lines. The rest of the trail is generally smooth and non-technical. There are no tree falls or drop offs.
