A very challenging, fun loop to add on to your All Mountain ride on West Cuesta Ridge. Begin by descending The What Trail, continue straight on to Secret Trail, turn right and climb Powerline road(STEEP), and then make another right on TV Tower Road, which will take you back to the start. This is an advanced loop with very steep, technical downhill and a very difficult climb, for advanced/expert riders.
