Description

This trail is the most technical singletrack trail in the South Mountains. There are not a bunch of views, but if coming down from the top, you'll get some nice technical sections, then a good, more mellow section along Shinny Creek before crossing the creek a few times near the bottom.

Didn't catch that this was closed on the app and no signs indicating it on the trails. Definitely some down trees and overgrowth to deal with.
