Description

This trail was recently created to join up the Newhall Open Space entrance on The Old Road to Peach Motorway. Peach Motorway (fire road) was gated off a few years ago due to a lawsuit. This trail connects to the open portion of Peach Motorway which descends into Wildwood Open Space.

The trail can be steep and loose with tight switchbacks and exposure. I rode it up. If I ride it again, I will ride it down. Up is very taxing, even on an eMTB.
