A fun trail that connects West Trail #318, or 'White Rock' as everyone calls it, and Javelina Trail #332.

This is a reroute of a social trail that has several rock features built in. The top, off West Trail #318, winds and twists a bit before crossing a drainage and dropping fairly sharply across a steep side hill. Nearing the bottom, there are a couple rock steps and ramps.

This trail is rideable in either direction, but best going down Climb back up Javelina Trail #332 to rejoin the Thumb Butte area trails.

      Fun and fast. The dirt was perfect and I had the fastest time I e ever recorded on this trail. The bumps and erosion is so minor I’m not sure...

      Minor erosion (trail braiding, small ruts developing, brake bumps) due to recent deluge of rain. Should smooth out with riding in now that PNF is...

       One of the better trails in the area in terms of descending fun. First bit starts off mild and then gets swoopy & fast with some tech sprinkled in for good measure.
