“This is the recommended Jeep Trail descent. A fun way to blast down Dunsmuir Hill on 25% downhill singletrack.”— Joshua Falcon
Some parking at the trailhead at the end of Covington.
There are two different singletracks down, one is very short and VERY steep and rocky, not recommended. The other singletrack winds down the hill more gradually, and connects back to the fire road. Alternatively, you can take the fire road down the whole way, but it is steeper than the singletrack.
Once the singletrack connects back to the fire road, there are couple routes, but as long as you are going down, you'll make it back to the trailhead, at the end of Covington Drive.
