This little used trail makes a great non fall-line descending trail that drops down to the railroad tracks. The trail is such that it is possible to climb up it, however it's much more fun using gravity to suck you down through the twists and turns.

The trail is narrow and has some level of fall hazard which is the only reason this trail is marked as a black diamond. It's a hard blue in truth. As Japanese gulch goes, very root free.

Large tree blocking multiple parts of the trail (corner before and after a berm), muddy, lots of erosion, not very pleasant.

 Abandoned overgrown ass route, mapping is also pretty inaccurate. Not sure why this got added so recently.

 Are you sure you caught the right trail? This one is narrow, but it's not overgrown or abandoned. Working on getting Japanese Gulch updated, however GPS tracks are only as good as what's produced off of a phone. This trail should be singletrack all the way down and not the trail with any of the old jumps or the big washed out hill with the rope swing, if by chance that was what you were referring too. Thanks for the feedback.
