Extremely hard steep loose single track. This trail is hardly used so the condition of it had deteriorated and is over grown with thorn bushes at some points. Very physically demanding sharp steep switchbacks and near vertical chutes at the bottom. This is basically a challenging hiking trail.

Access Info

Start the trail after the second switchback or so on Upper Holy Jim. At the bottom the trail dumps you off in a functional quarry to get out start making your way along the side of the quarry to the right where you will encounter a cliff when you get close to the fence. I suggest bring a rope and steak if you don't want to drop your bike off the cliff and possibly damage it. After that just find a way to get out of the barb wire fence there are a few gates that you can pry open and slip through.
