Holds the crest of the ridge through open forest before descending to marina

Description

Departs from Powerline Trail cutoff just below peak elevation.

Well marked with red blazes, keep your wits about you as this trail has several intersections with an identically blazed trail. Here, one can assume that "all drains lead to the ocean," but this is a less aggressive option for descent compared to the double diamond downhill.

The trail winds around the ridge top through open forest with small-medium obstacles, and low-commitment rock gardens compared to the norm at moraine. Don't worry, there is still plenty of thrill as several larger features are options, but each has an easy way around.

Watch for the changing forest floor as the elevation drops.
