Used mainly as a downhill trail coming from either the Abyss, Humility or Easy Peasy because it takes a rider to a well used parking lot off of Extension Road. This 1.5 km trail offers some very fast and technical sections. Climbing it has mainly been for the very fit but some new work is being done to make it a two way trail allowing easy access to either the Abyss, Humility or Easy Peasy

Access Info

From the east off of Pot Sticker you turn right where it crosses the gravel road under the power lines or if you are coming from the parking place on Extension Road you turn left where it crosses the gravel road under the power lines. Go up the gravel road under power lines for about 140 meters and the trail head is visible to the left.
From the Abyss you end up at a gravel road, turn left on it and go up the hill, turn right at the first spur road you see. follow it for 100 meters or so and then turn right on a small spur road. The trail is at the end.
From Humility and Easy Peasy you follow the trail down until you can see a trail crossing the trail, turn left to go downhill to bottom or turn right to go up to the Abyss
