Description

To reach it, turn off Middle Ridge Road (Forest Rd. 801) onto Ballard Trail. Pole Cat bears left a short distance later. The top part of the trail has several short, rocky sections and about one third of the way in, there is large tree across the trail that has not been cut. There is what looks at first glance like a ride-over on the left of the main trail, but it is a jump.

After this, the trail levels out a bit for a short distance before descending at a consistent grade all the way to the road. It is not a particularly technical trail for the most part, but the descent is generally consistent and fast throughout the length of the trail.
