A traversing trail that takes riders from the logging road towards the top of Mad Hatter, while also providing an option to turn off to Hot Tuna. Can be ridden either direction, but more fun SE to NW.

Access Info

Climb the logging road to get to Ed's Bypass/Made In The Shade, but keep climbing for another kilometer.
