Description
The trail is technical although covered with fallen trees that only Hans Rey could get over. If it has recently rained the trail disappears so choose your time wisely.

Review: It's barley rideable - just patchy sections are able to be ridden, but for the city - you can find a way to hammer out some miles and practice some technique.

Review: I ride these trails almost daily. There are several that split off from the main bridal trail. Some are much more difficult and technical than others. If your up for a challenging ride, take these side trails after a heafty rain. They stay passable, but give you a good workout. You will need a hose after it! Some of the trails closer to the river are washed out due to recent flodding, but several remain intact. most of them are pretty deep in the woods considering the urban area you're actually in.

Review: I ride this trail on a regualr basis. It does not have much elevation changes, but if you look for smaller single track trails that run along side or connect to other larger trails in the area there is a lot of fun to be had, plus more of a challenge.
