Trail Overview

Not to be confused with the Widow Maker Bypass (which bypasses the Widow Maker obstacle), this trail (officially designated D1799) allows either half of Metal Masher to be bypassed. The bypass is a dirt road, with a quarter-mile stretch at the north end covered with small rocks (3-6 inches in diameter). It is available for those looking to do either half of the trail--it can be used to finish the first half of Metal Masher or to skip the first half and complete the second half.
