Extremely steep, loose, and rocky at the top switchbacks with many worn out jumps and drops. Following section through the canyon is dangerously narrow and loose, riding just up against a 20-30 ft cliff that drops into a boulder filled canyon. Take it slow the first time around.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

       Also, if you like the first part with the features, ride the upper section of this trail.
