Description

This is primarily thought of as a mountain biking area, so though foot traffic is allowed, please stay alert and be respectful of other users.

Danky Dank Trail links the Esker Trail and Treasure's Trace to create a 10-mile hike through some of the most remote forest in the area. Starting with a narrow, hand-built singletrack atop a rocky glacial esker, Danky Dank morphs into a more new-school, open and smooth experience and then into more rugged terrain.

On the east end, there is a series of rocky sections and logs. If you're into backpacking, look for a sweet rustic campsite overlooking a small unnamed pond toward the east end of the trail.

This is a point-to-point hike with no bail-outs. Cell phone coverage is spotty at best.
