       Fun trail for a long, slack AM bike like my Nomad. Yeah, it's loose, but there are good berms to keep you from flying off anywhere too crazy. Don't armor up until the intersection with 4A a little ways in. Learned that when it was 97 degrees out and I threw the pads on at 8th street. Good fun. Just let it rip and get your drift on.

       This Connector between sidewinder and the gulch was the best part of my ride, conditions had the dirt packed tight and you can straight up send the rollers as deep as you wanted and plenty of berm to ride carry lots of speed. mildly tased in the middle of the trip but on a newer geo trail bike this this was a blast.
