Description

The trail begins right next to Ken Custard's chimney at the top of North Ridge Way hill. Don't wait and catch your breath! Get rolling on this trail straight away.

Stay to the right following the singletrack past the chimney. Get rolling down the path. Stay to the right, the spurs from NW 31st Ave will drop in on your left. The trail will cross the little bridge.

The now closed Smokestack trail is on the left. Stay to the right and follow the trail back down the ridge line.

When you roll out at the bottom you'll be t-boning the North Ridge Way descent. Be careful not to have a serious collision.

This isn't that difficult of a turn unless you hit that stump. There is a difficult turn with a 15 inch drop ahead.

All the narrow single tracks were still "seasonally" closed, including Custards. The area is quickly drying out, hopefully open now. 6.7mi — 1h 01m
