Description

Follow this fast singletrack with plenty of twists and steep, short climbs and drops. Take a fast downhill line though the chalky dust and cross over a narrow bridge spanning a small ravine. This trail loops north from the Strip Mine Trail with access to the trailhead at the west end on Forest Road Loop.
