Good views, terrible trail.

Description

Unless you like riding down a dry creekbed with adult head-size chunder in your path, I'd recommend not taking this trail. It starts innocently enough, with some fast, open singletrack just beckoning you to open 'er up. However, the fun abruptly ends and you're ushered into the creekbed. The rowdiness continues like this until the trail's end.

The last ride-able section of #838; from here, it's pure chunder.

Sections of Cavanaugh's Trail require walking your bike due to a very steep and washed out trail.
