Description

This is an epic spur to the Mt. Watson summit. It is a gorgeous, winding singletrack with epic views.

Along this trail you'll find a great climb and descent. It is much better than the Watson Peak Fire Road. I recommend skipping the Watson Peak Fire Road and do this as an out-and-back.

This trail was realigned a few years ago by USFS from a illegal fall line moto trail (a trench), into an amazing piece of new generation singletrack. Bring your camera!
