Trail Overview

This Trail starts off with an easy gravel road switching quickly to a small off-camber climb. There's a steep rock climb, and there's a direct and easier but narrower way. There are many mud pits, most with a bypass. Near the end the trail cuts back steeply to River Road, starting a steep, off-camber descent. This trail is Gorgeous, and a welcome change from portions of the KAT on the Main 2 that could be completed in a Prius. This Trail follows the top of a Sandstone Outcropped Ridge, dropping into a Hemlock Forest. There is even a small waterfall at the end, with several campgrounds following this portion of the trail.


Air down for this trail. Steep Rock climbs, deep rutted mud holes. Full bash plates are a plus.
