Description - A very scenic, cool, hilly single track ride that even has a couple stunts to play on. Starting on the railroad bed you will find some moderately technical single track to the north and south. Crossing the river over the cumstock bridge, the trail follows the river for a bit and you start to gain elevation (all ride-able!!), onward, you will find one great slick-rock-ish climb - several cool descents with many airtime drops. A mello seesaw and 3 foot drop for the free-riders. All in all a great place - Try not to get arrested by cops in bikini's like MOAS though!!
This is tubeless T-shirt todd country - look out for him!!
