Description

This trail starts off of Stinky Pete about halfway along the trail. Coming from Middle Ridge Road Access, it is on the right.

The trail begins with a steep, mostly smooth descent and then generally contours along the side of the hill just below Middle Ridge Road Access. There are two switchbacks about 1/3 of the way down the trail.

After this, the trail flattens out a bit and is rolling with several rocky areas. About 2/3 of way to the bottom, there is a short connector that bears to the right that connects back to Middle Ridge Road Access, allowing you to climb back up to the trail system on the ridge if you don't want to ride all the way to the bottom.

After this, the trail becomes narrower and less well-benched. The final few hundred yards to Davis Creek Trail are steep and off-camber, and, in wet conditions, can be very slippery.
