A very old trail with many steep ups and downs. Very technical, and the climbs are difficult to clean. There are some nice slabs on the trail. You won’t get your flow here, but it can be rewarding.
Provides the egress to Marc My Word.

      Medium sized tree down across trail. Going to need more than a handsaw to get through it.

       rode this July 2014, definitely could use some attention.
      looked like we were the first on the trail in quite some time.....

       Rode this July 2015, very steep climb, spent most of the time walking my bike. No big features just very steep climb on a narrow trail!

       It’s good to go. Sure it’s a bit over grown but it’s still a fun ride

       Overgrown, pretty nasty chute into two tight corners towards the end.

       With the Guanxi connector to skip some of the overgrown stuff this is a great trail. Tough technical climbs but all rideable and a very nice alternative to the mashiter descent.

       It’s the kinda trail that like has a really annoying awful climb but has a big reward, but the thing with border patrol is it just ends before the reward. Definitely not worth in my opinion

       Semi-worthwhile if you pop out to the guanxi connector after the awesome rock slabs. Though you're in the hanky lowers of entrails. I mean worth doing once I guess.

       A great trail for vegans. It's all plants, quite overgrown. Wouldn't recommend
