One of the two new trails at Wirth as of June 2018. This loop is smooth dirt singletrack with plenty of rollers and tight switchbacks. There are very few technical features, and the ones that exist (two small rocks) are b-lines. The ups on this trail are much steeper than most of the other trails at Wirth.

The Area 36 trail has names for the various sections. It starts of with The Widow Maker, which is actually a very easy climb, but turns into a some nice berms and some small whoops that you can get a tiny bit of air on. Most the trail really is very easy, especially if you just ride slow. The rest of the trail traverses around with some big berms.
