“An excellent trail with great climbing grades or a twisting and turning descent.”— Selkirk Powder
The top is a new trail with wide tread and banked turns while the lower section is classic singletrack that has been improved with bridges and de-rooted surface. The big trees and babbling creek make this a great piece of the Schweitzer Basin system.
This is one of the best trails when it's hot and dusty everywhere else.
