A fun loop starting with a short downhill from Ponderosa Way to the PPOA clubhouse. Then an easy climb up Wycliff Way to the start of the Amherst Plunge Trail (look for a trail next to a telephone pole across from Amherst Way). Amherst Plunge is a fun fast downhill ride all the way down to the ravine. And finally, climb up Ponderosa Way to the start. It is a lot of fun and if you want something longer just loop it a couple times.

      The trail has eroded so badly in one spot that you are almost guaranteed to slide out.
