Description

Rough trail makes a fun, rocky and muddy downhill connection between the Laurel Gap trail (grassy road) and FR 74. Not that great uphill - there's no real good downhill to connect to unless you come back down this trail. Huge jumps near bottom. A little overgrown with weeds, seldom used. Watch for stinging nettle as it hangs over the trail - if it brushes up against your legs, you'll be itchin' by the time you get to the bottom. Creek crossings. Part of the Douglas Falls and Coleman Boundary Grand Tour best rides.
