Description

This cross-country, wooded trail takes riders up quite a bonus climb that may or may not be worth it, based on your goals.

The most worthwhile part of this xc-skiing feeling singletrack (it's wide) is without a doubt the viewpoint found in the first quarter. After that, the trail is a grinding but mostly mellow climb to a pretty fun winding descent. The descent is filled with roots and tight switchbacks, which can be really fun.

It terminates at an open area right where Prospect pops in.
