This is a low-angle trail connecting the 2006 Trail to Entertainment Trail. This provides multiple loop options as well as an alternate route to the top of Mount Ascension.

It is a fun descent in the northbound direction, and an easy climb in the southbound direction. It provides one of the few opportunities in the South Hills for a timid rider to enjoy the feeling of descending without switchbacks or lots of braking.
