Emmett's Trail runs along the ridge above the old Mini Ridge road. It's the longest sustained downhill in the South Hills, and with Mini Ridge right next to it, offers a good down-and-back from the Ridge, or a short loop from Grizzly Gulch. E Trail (as it's also known) intersects Mini Ridge at a couple points; stay to the right. Watch your bars - there are some tight trees on this trail, and a few tight switchbacks that come up with little warning.

 Recent (spring 2016) trail work has added a few berms, and raised others.
