“A steep firelane descending from Skyline Boulevard to Leif Erikson Drive.”— Josh Hall
The trail is fast downhill for the first bit then twists you uphill before plunging into the forest. There is a steeper downhill section which is relatively washed out (early May), and after this it turns rocky. There are quick turns among trees and roots before it drops you out at Leif Erikson Drive. Take a right at the bottom and then your next available right to pedal up old Saltzman back to the start.
There are trails off the side of this which do not allow bikes. Also, be aware of private property signs that line the beginning.
Overall, a fun, short downhill ride with a longer ascent to the beginning. I first rode this as a novice and had no trouble but had to take many portions very slow. For an expert, this trail would likely be a bore. Tall riders be warned because currently (early May) there are some branches down which lay over the trail.
