A short but very fun trail that starts from the base of the Mt. Bigelow Cell towers and ends in the Palisades parking area. The trail is rocky but rideable the whole way, with some nicely built switchbacks. The top of the trail is somewhat steeper and has the largest feature on the trail, a drop that goes over multiple roots. After descending 0.2 miles you will reach an intersection with the butterfly trail and incinerator ridge, turn right to continue on Bigelow. Be alert for hikers.
