Features -none-

This trail is currently under construction, but can currently be ridden to the bridge as an out-and -back. Closed sunset to sunrise.

Description

Motts Extension Trail starts off of and returns to Snuffleupagus. The trail is currently at 0.9 miles in each direction. The trail winds back and forth as it takes riders down towards the water. The trail is still rough, and has some spots where small tree root balls were removed, leaving a helmet sized hole behind. There are still orange and pink flags the entire length of the trail marking it.

Once you’ve reached the bridge, turn back and climb all the way back up to the intersection with Snuffleupagus. Don’t forget to add a rock to the cairn just around the first hairpin turn on your way back up.
