  • Follow the single track back down the hollow coming back down the left side of Wolf Pup Trail then take a right on the Sleeping Wolf Trail (Yellow) which will be back on double track straight up the hill.

  • Turn right on the Wolf Tail Trail (red), which will continue up the hill. Keep left when you get to the top of the hill where you will do a couple large dips.
