This has become an extremely popular climbing trail for people accessing West Bragg trails from Station Flats / Allen Bill, and riders looping back to West Bragg after descending Ridgeback 3. The trail is fairly smooth, with few roots and loose rocks except at the very bottom and top of the trail. However, it is also an incredibly fun descent...
From Ranger Summit, drop down Bobcat through a rooty, fast and tight trail in old growth and past the Sugar Mama intersection. Continue down through more old growth, before popping out into an aspen rimmed meadow and the Fullerton Loop/Bobcat intersection. This section of the trail provides some of the best views of West Bragg, with the meadow opening up and looking over the entire Elbow Valley. Enjoy a fast paced rip across the bottom of the meadow and start into the rollers that descend the ridge line. The trail switches into a Berm Barista, serving up corner after corner until it climaxes in the bipolar toilet bowl, alternating between clockwise and counter clockwise flushes. Enjoy a final fast paced exit through Moo-Moo Meadows [watch for cows and their deposits] and over some bridges before getting spit out at the junction with Ridgeback. From here you have several options to return to West Bragg Parking, or continue through to Station Flats Parking, or link to some of the Moose Mountain Trails.
From the bottom, access is a signed junction between Ridgeback 2 and Ridgeback 3.
From the top: take Ranger Summit or Strange Brew to the Bobcat intersection, just west of Baruch's Corner summit lounge.
