Summary:
Nice mix of downhill, trail, tight turns, logs, roots, and a 5-6 foot ramp (to scary for me, rode the ramp).

Recommended Route:
Do bicks then turn right before you come out on the gravel road.

Tomato Creek, Bicks, Arbutus, Monkey's Challenge, Suporo's Steek, 2 Sheeks & a Dog, Puntledge Plunge, Blow out your Candle, Tony's Trail, Shithouse.

Ridden Trail:
Once a year

Reviewed by: Brian , from Rome, NY

Summary:
This is a very cool trail, go down it though because up is a bitch. There is enough stuff to keep you on your toea nad a steep section or two that makes you think about whether or not to ride it. All in all a very good ride.

Recommended Route:
Follow the directions given earlier, but the wooden sign for "Vulcan Factory" is easy to miss.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
All over the mountain there are a bunch of trails listed in the original review. One of the best places I have ever ridden anywhere in the world.
