Classic old-school singletrack.

Description

This is a classic specimen of old-school, hand-built singletrack. It's raw, tight, twisty, punchy and requires plenty of low-speed bike handling skills. This is one of the few remaining mountain bike trails in the area that has a number of intentional log-overs (remember those, from the good-ol-days?). There is at least one good purpose-built jump and lots of opportunity to lose your *shtuff* and fall over sideways. It's not the most technical XC stuff out there, but it does require your attention. Bonus points if you can ride it 'clean' in the winter.
