Contains optional TTFs, steep rough terrain and moderately steep natural TTFs. Considered one of the easier North Shore trails, it is well maintained and can be ridden with more speed. A good introduction to more technical trails.

Access Info

Accessed off Mtn Hwy past the 5th switchback at the large clearing. Don't get confused, Pipeline has two entrances a few feet apart so look a little further for Ladies only if that's where you are going.
