Description

Meandering past more historic remnants of the mining era, this trail is a bit more suited to hiking than biking with some very tight switchbacks. Enjoyable beginner to intermediate trail with some steeper grades that require more effort than the doubletrack below. Highlight of this trail is an old cabin that sits right next to the trail.
