Primarily ridden as a connector to Captain Jacks. This trail provides an opportunity for someone to test their fitness or to meander up and enjoy Captain Jacks downhill. Downhill riding will not provide much flow or exceitment but can serve as a alternate route to access other Cheyenne Canyon trails.

This is a semi-popular hiking route due to the close proximity of Cheyenne Canyon Upper Trailhead.
