“Rock slabs, rock gardens, fast tracks, short climbs and dives, switchbacks - it's got it all!”

A very fun, fast, and technical trail. This one begins with a short uphill over a big slab rock and then a quick left turn into a short technical down/up. The trail winds through a wooded area over lots of rocks. Beware, the trail is named for the local critters, and we've seen a couple of scorpions under some of the rocks!
The trail switches back and forth a couple of times, out of the woods and then diving back into them. There's a fun switchback halfway through that takes riders over some tricky rocks. Once you make the switchback, be ready for a couple foot drop onto a short downhill run.
The exit is close to where the trail starts. For now, (until we finish the next section of the trail system that is in progress), you can head back on the doubletrack toward the parking area, but a short distance before you get there, you'll see the arrows pointing down to finish the last portion of Muskrat Maze
. You don't want to miss this portion either. Again, it's technical with big rocks, twists and turns and a nice rock/root climb toward the end.
