A fun, twisty section through a poplar forest.

Features -none-

This whole system is primarily used by mountain bikes but is open to foot traffic. Please stay alert while on the trails and be respectful of other users.

Description

This twisty and rolling section of the outer loop is super fun. There's a tough climb toward the west side but once you get up to the top, the view is amazingly spectacular. Continue heading east and start the carve along the Shanty Boy.

Use this singletrack to connect from Road Monkey Trail to Gabriel's Horn Trail.
