This is an extension of the access track that links off of McGouns Rd. The track veers right as the wider track branches as it gets steeper. As the name suggests it is a straight decent down a root strewn ridge, that near the end returns to single track (abruptly) and drops to the bottom hub.

 Exposed roots in all directions downhill. Not recommended when wet! Otherwise a very good way to exercise the suspension.
