Trail Overview

This is a short 50" trail that connects the Fivemile dirt road with the ATV and single track 7433 trails. From the north end it's a steady downhill with some more technical features. It drops 800 feet in 1.6 miles. It's a road width trail for most of it, but it has steep downhills with twisty turns. There are lots of golf ball sized loose rock in the beginning covering the surface of the trail, with several small rock ledges and drop offs. It switchbacks down with lots of ruts running straight down the trail and has potential for some big mud holes in the spring and summer. Stay left at the unmarked intersection to stay on this trail (when going downhill). It ends in a meadow at the intersection with the dirt road.
