Lovers trail located just east of the Kettles is a place where time forgot. Crawl over washouts and gaze among the fields and trees. Do not trespass and go down into the ravine or washouts. Has a mandatory lvl 4 roll of 16 degrees. 

Lovers Trail is a dirt road with washouts, trees and it's pretty rough. Please take caution to not cause damage, maybe we can turn this into a local crawling trail at some point! Of all the old roads, this one is very trail like.

It's not long but this trail is FUN. We hit it today and it was virgin snow! Some of the washouts could get folks stuck. Saw lots of old dumped tires on this trail. We talked about doing a cleanup this Spring to pick em up. Out of all the public trails in the area, this one is the most trail like. The Roll was 16 degrees so if you're not a fan of tilting sideways, this might not be the best trail to start on. Don't do this trail alone in case you get stuck.

This road/trail will be tight and lots of overhanging brush and washouts  I was able to travel the trail with no issues but sliding into some of the washouts could have made it worse some are 3ft deep. So watch it if you are by yourself.   This is a road that farmers use  to make it some of their fields and it is Not maintained.
