Great singletrack trail that offers some spectacular riding in the upper ends of the 50yr system. Also the most common way to connect Charlou Gap to the Upper 50yr when coming back from CDO. Also an awesome way to make the ride out to Cherry Tank into a loop ride. Offers a couple very challenging climbs and descents, plus some great sections of slickrock.
