Discovered in 1999, this piece of public property has 5 miles of wooded and open single track. Making use of the three existing concrete fords, the trails wind through the Little Salt Creek valley and then features climbs on the steep wooded hillsides to the south. Use caution crossing the fords during high water! Although some recent logging has hurt the aesthetics the trail is still worth a ride due to its easy access and fast single track. The climb out of the valley, which utilizes a township road, is rewarded with two miles of flat and down hill running to get back to the valley floor.
