Part of the Whiskey Off Road course Trail 321 starts with uneasy double track section just off Trail 327 then starts to climb. At the beginning of the climb there are multiple rocky sections that are rideable but be careful. Once at the top a tight left hander brings you back down and ready for "Cramp Hill"

       They need to put a sign at that "tight left hander." It's literally a U-turn at the bottom of a descent that you are not expecting the first time you ride it! Maybe not even the second time Smile
