Very rocky singletrack that was once a fireroad. Short but very technical climb, or a fast and wild descent. Very rocky and possibly dangerous, but lots of fun if you are an advanced rider.

      The rock ripples feel more exposed, washed out. But definitely rideable

      Lots of flies in the morning but overall a hard rocky climb up but a fun rocky way down.
