A half singletrack, half doubletrack climb through a saddle.

Description

The bottom of this trail begins off of the parking loop and begins to climb. At the first trail intersection the Bucktail Trail (orange blaze) will continue left, while the Bucktail Cutoff (pink blaze) will continue to the right.

From the parking lot, roughly 2.5 miles of this trail is doubletrack. You'll climb up and down a saddle on doubletrack untill you reach a bridge. Do not cross the bridge but continue upstream on the right on singletrack. You'll cross the stream a few times and eventually arrive at the Bucktail Trail Road.
