Look out for this turning at the main Swine Flu junction where you take a sharp left at a cow lick. This trail is straight ahead and there is a sign on a stump (Mad Cow TLC). A much less-travelled but just as good climb to the upper sections of Swine Flu. It kicks you out on the Swine Flu climb at the pig. A lot of people looking to do a couple of Swine Flu loops will do one climb on the Swine Flu climb, and then the next one on this trail. Also a good loop is to climb this trail, turn left at the pig and ride over to Far Side and down.
