Description

The trail profile gives the illusion that this trail is steep, but you probably won't even notice the gradual climb of 300 feet over 4 miles on your way out, and the gradual 4 mile descent on the return. You'll be busy enjoying carving your way along the smooth singletrack through everything from wide open terrain with great views to very narrow gulches as you follow a section of the former Midland Railroad.

It's generally easy and smooth singletrack, but where the train bridges have been removed, you'll find your way around up/down, surprisingly technical terrain requiring short bursts of energy and good line choosing skills to successfully navigate your way.
