This is a great, and undeservedly under-ridden trail that criss-crosses OGDH. Along with Upper Ivan, Goose Chase is the steepest trail at Tokul East. For my money, at least one section of it is slightly steeper than the steepest part of Upper Ivan. Several nice (optional) natural stump jumps add to the fun on the lower section. The steep sections of this trail are NOT good in the rain - unless you like riding super steep, super greasy, deeply rutted clay that collectively make it impossible to either brake or steer, and in which case you just point it and pray til the bottom.

This trail now runs all the way to the SVT, exiting where OGDH does. For extra (largely unknown) fun, start at the very top of the trail, which can be found at the top of the power line road, on the left after you crest the top. This short extra bit will give you a nice elevated bridge skinny over a swamp, and a small but steep road cut drop in onto the second to last power line road switchback. Trail continues down across the road (in fact most people think this is the start of Goose Chase and don't ride the upper section).
