FERNS!!! Who knew?
It is one of the older trails in the Mice, this little hidden trail is seldom ridden but is quite a flowy enjoyable cruise if you don't mind tall shrubs and ferns alongside the trail. It stays wet for a long time in the spring as it is very sheltered (hence the ferns).
The trail tread is narrow and the shrubs are tall so don't come in cookin hot and blow off into a deadfall or rock.
Often ridden in from Prime Rib at the hard right hander, just keep straight and use your Dog The Bounty Hunter senses. It drops down into the gully via a goat path slightly wider than your crankset.
If approaching from the original entrance on Drops ... follow the map, I've never done it that way
