Description

Wrapping around the North West side of Sun Mountain lodge, this singletrack is probably the most traveled of them all and for a reason. Long, rolling, and with a new section towards Winthrop Trail that includes switchbacks.

Great trail. No direct access to the trail from the Chickadee trailhead that I'm aware of- had to use a couple connector trails to get to it. 6.5mi
