It is a 9 mi/14.5 km trail, following the path of the Old West Side Lumber Company’s railroad line. Trails on the railroad line guarantee an easy grade.
This trail, however, is kind of tricky to reach and difficult to follow. In order to pull it through, you must be adventurous enough, have very good, directional skills and always carry a map and a compass or GPS.
