New connector trail between the parking lot and the Amasa Back road. This is the best way of getting to Hymasa/Ahab/etc since you avoid having to ride on Kane Creek Road

Trail is brand new, so still a bit sandy - but 100% rideable.

       This trail is fun to finish up a Captain Ahab loop on but its more fun to start by riding up the road and dropping in on Lower Hyamasa.
