Recently updated with a nice reroute, this trail is fun both up and down. Mostly ridden up to tie in as a loop, this is fun downhill.

       FYI, the northernmost section of this trail is incorrectly named.
      The section that runs NE for 0.6 miles is actually the continuation of Gashouse Gulch Trail, labeled as only "Gashouse" on the tral signs.
      COMBA and USFS is working to correct on signage.
