“A steep downhill trail connecting to the North Umpqua Trail.”
— Aaron Roe
Need to Know
When the trail intersects the road, it follows the road to the right and then down the first road to the left. The singletrack leaves the road at the first switchback. This is a deviation from the map and what the sign would suggest. The trail may have formerly crossed the road but this is a very young stand that has choked it out.
This is a relatively lightly maintained trail with a lot of potential as a good downhill trail. It rapidly switchbacks down the ridgeline though an older forest stand. Currently, most of the switchbacks are too tight to successfully negotiate. Widening the switchback radius or banking them would allow this trail to be a very flowy downhill trail.
